Winemaking Hand-harvested grapes undergo a controlled winemaking process to preserve typical varietal characteristics. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel for about 2 weeks to
obtain optimal extraction of fruit and soft tannins. Malolactic fermentation is followed by a short
period of lees aging in stainless steel to add complexity but without overwhelming the wine’s varietal freshness.
