Manual harvesting at night and at dawn. The grapes are divided into two batches with both varieties and identical quantities.
The first batch method is direct press, without destemming. Separation, after pressing, of the must from the masses. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel vats, without the addition of yeasts only with autochthonous yeasts.
In the second batch, the “tanning” method is used: the grapes are de-stemmed and transferred to a press where they ferment, without temperature control and only with the autochthonous yeasts, the must, the skins and seeds together. Daily the blanket is mixed with the must.
At the end of fermentation, the second batch is pressed and the two are added.
The wine is not glued and has tangential filtration before bottling
No patches and no wood.
