Winemaker Notes

Crushing with full or partial de-stemming, fermentation of the must at 68 to 77F. As the structure of the future wine is achieved, we only macerate this wine maximum 10-15 days. We prevent wine from conducting MLF thus trying to save its original flavors, which will then be combined with the effects of the wine’s elevage in our cellars. We opt to deliver the wine conveying true varietal and regional characters as well as make our signature wine stressing on its origins.
