Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks of reduced capacity for 19 days at a maximum temperature of 28ºC. Pumping over and punching depending on the density of fermentation. It undergoes malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels, where it is aged and refined for more than 16 months. The wine has not undergone any stabilization process, so it may have some sediment.
