On the palate, it is fresh and lively, silky through the mouth, with present and sweet tannins and a long aftertaste.
Grapes are hand-harvested and deposited in 15 kg cases to maintain their integrity. It is quickly transported to the winery. Barrelling is done by gravity and, after a pre-fermentative maceration of 24-48 hours at low temperature, the must ferments at a controlled temperature of 23-25ºC.
During the fermentation, daily over-pumpings are carried out. The total fermentation time is 18-20 days. The wine matures in 2nd-3rd year French oak casks for 12 months. Finally, the wine rests in the bottle for 6 months before being sold.
