Handly picked grapes, cold fermentation technology on reductive environment, with controlled temperature at about 16 ºC, very gentle crushing and pressing in an inert atmosphere to preserve all the aromatic potential of grapes. Part of the wine fermented in used French oak and remains there after a short racking on fine lees with regular stirring "battonage" to the making of the final blend with the wine in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation and aging in French and American wood with "battonage" until the filling.
