Grape harvesting is punctuated based on the degree of ripeness of the grapes and based on the wines to produce. It is traditionally and strictly done by hand placed in crates not exceeding 18 Kg. The grape without the stalks is left to ferment under controlled temperature (24°C) in temperature controlled stainless steel fermentors for about 10 days with the addition of selected yeasts. These processes are followed by daily operations of pumping the wine over the skins (called frollatura) and délastage, raking after fermentation, periodical operations of decanting and assembling the wines produced.
Filtration before bottling.
