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 months in French oak barrels, 50% new and 50% one year old. The wine is then transferred into 25 hectolitres Slavonian oak barrels where it is aged for 12 months, followed by another 12 months of bottle ageing.
