Winemaking:
Crushing-destemming followed by maceration in contact with skins.

In barrels of 500 liters for the first 12 months, then transferred to oak barrels of 50 hectoliters for the next 24 months, at the end of which is assemblage and bottling. Rests in the bottle at a constant temperature of 14° C (57° F) for six months before release.
