6 months in 2nd year French oak barrels with weekly bâtonnage .
After careful selection by their best state, the grapes were harvested for chests of 25 kg and sent to the wine- making center where they were slightly pressed in a pneumatic press. The resulting must was sent to stainless steel vats, and cooled, where it remained for 24 hours to make the decantation. At the end of this period, it was filtered and transferred to another stainless steel vat where it was inoculated with selected yeasts, having fermented at a controlled temperature of 14-16oC. After the alcoholic fermentation, it staged in 2nd year French oak barrels with weekly bâtonnage during 6 months.
