Vinification The harvest began with ripeness tests, analysis of the grapes’polyphenol content and daily tasting as they reached peak maturity. Harvesting ripe, healthy fruit is the best way to guarantee the superior quality of the wines we produce. The grapes are picked by hand, and carried to the winery in special grape bins within an hour of leaving the vine.
The grapes are sorted and de-stemmed before being transferred to thermo-regulated vats. Each grape variety is processed separately. Maceration lasts for around 20-25 days.
Aging At the end of the winter the wines are transferred to new,225litre oakbarrels and left to mature for 12 to 16 months.
