WINE MAKING AND SHARPENING

To allow for a prolonged contact of the must with the skins, the fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. Maturation is then carried out for 12 - 16 months in French oak barrels, 50% new and 50% one year old, followed by 6 - 9 months of bottle ageing.
