The planting density is 5000-6000 plants / ha and the yield is about 1.5-2 kg.di grapes per vine. The harvest is made at fully ripe bunches (lignification of the stalk), usually the end of September.
Vinification takes place at a controlled temperature and involves the crushing-stemming of the grapes then follows the maceration with the skins for a short period (5-7 days.) in order to preserve the fruity characteristics of the grape. Follows the end of alcoholic fermentation and a racking short ¨malolactic¨ process in stainless steel tanks. Follows the tartaric stabilization, microfiltration and bottling.
