Fermentation takes place in traditional vats with daily pumping over to extract as much color as possible. Then, after pressing the marc, the wine is integrated into barrels for its malolactic fermentation. The juice then enters a 12-month ageing period in barrels that have already matured a wine to have subtle woody notes bringing body and complexity to the wine.
