This privileged area has a particular microclimate of dry summers, with
warm, sunny days and cool nights. The marked thermal amplitude
favors the development of the grapes, providing a great concentration
of aromas and optimal health
A contact of no more than 10 hours is established with the skins, in
stainless steel tanks, where the skin maceration takes place at a low
temperature of 8 °C, in order to achieve a higher concentration of
aromas and flavors typical of the variety. Subsequently, the grapes are
pressed, the musts drain by gravity and ferment in stainless steel tanks
at a low temperature (15 °C). After the fermentation, the wine it is left in contact with the fine lees, acquiring unctuousness on the palate. It is
finally clarified and stabilized at temperatures of -2 °C and then filtered.
