Once the harvest is delivered to the winery hall, it is hand sorted in order to keep the best bunches of the grapes. After the destalking of the grapes, its juice, skins and pulp are put into the vat for 15-18 days. The prefermentary cold maceration starts during this period and lasts for 5-6 days, followed by an alcoholic fermentation. Cap-punching is made during this period in order to obtain complete and perfect maceration.
