The work begins in the vineyard with a selection of the plots best suited to produce this type of wine. The grapes are harvested largely manually. A double sorting system is carried out in the vineyard and in the cellar. The vinification is traditional and the grapes are therefore destemmed before the maceration phase begins, which lasts between 3 and 4 weeks.
Pressing is carried out, followed by malolactic fermentation. Two-thirds of the wines are aged for 9 months in barrels, the rest being kept in vats to be blended in Spring. After a light fining, the wines are bottled and kept for several months before marketing.
