Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks s for 12 days with macro oxygenation and frequent pumping over in order to extract colour and achieve soft tannins, followed by malolactic fermentation. The juice is left in contact with the skins for 8 – 10 days.
A totally modern wine, made using the best possible up-to-date methods to bring out the very best in the grape variety. It is a classic style updated to suit the contemporary palate for fruit-driven wines.
