Grapes are mechanically harvested overnight. After 2 days of pre-fermenting maceration, the alcoholic fermentation takes place at 24ºC in stainless steel tanks. The musts are pressed pneumatically and the malolactic fermentation occurs in French and American oak casks, where the wine ages during 6 months.
