Vinification notes: Selection of grapes through a sorting table. Soft and delicate pressing and destemming of the grapes, taking care not to break the skin of the berries. Subsequent tumultuous fermentation in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of around 28 ° - 30 ° C (without any addition of external yeasts). Macerations lasted for about 13-15 for both Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Pumping over and frequent delestages have favored the aromatic extraction over the tannic one. Malolactic fermentation in steel completed at the end of November.
Aging: At the end of the malolactic fermentation the wine was placed in French oak barriques, (for a third new wood and the rest, first and second passage) where it spent a period of aging of 24 months in compliance with the production disciplinary, always keeping the masses separated by vineyard origin. Assembly of the masses just before being destined for the preparatory stages of bottling and subsequent phase of refinement in glass before marketing.
