Vinification The fermentation cellar was planned for controlling all the different phases of the vinification and for exalting the finest qualities of the grapes. The grapes first fermented in their own yeast at temperatures between 80 and 86 °F for 14 days. During this phase, they were automatically punched down twice a day to draw out their finest qualities.
Aging After macerating on their skins for a further 7 days, the malolactic fermentation started and in January and February the wine was moved to Slavonian oak casks holding between 400 and 950 gallons and French oak barriques, where it was aged for 2 years and in port in stainless vats steel until bottling after a light filtration.
