Vinification

Grapes are hand-picked at the optimum of their maturity. Softly de-stemmed grapes are cooled down to t 4-6°C and then gently pressed in the pneumatic press. Later, the settled and clear juice starts fermenting slowly at precisely controlled temperature (15-18°C) in stainless steel tanks. When the fermenting juice reaches optimum sugar/acidity balance, fermentation is stopped by cooling, in order to retain the natural sweetness and freshness of the wine. Wine is usually bottled in few months after the vintage.
