The grapes were hand-harvested from selected vineyard blocks, received at the cellar where thety were de-stemmed, crushed, given a short period of skin contact (to intensify flavours) and then pressed. Temperature-controlled fermentation took place. Only the best tanks are selected for the final preparation of the blend according to the style of the wine. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for another three months to give extra body and elegance, prior to preparation for bottling.
