The grapes were harvested manually into 20 kg boxes, with a pre-selection in the vineyard. The grapes were selected a second time on a sorting table, cooled and immediately pressed. The resulting must was transferred to new and used French oak barrels, where it completed the fermentation and remained for about 6 months, with battonage, to gently stirr the fine lees.
