Elaboration

We elaborate in a natural way, with a manual harvest in 250 kg containers. We enter the bunches with skins and without shanks to the cement cups, to make a pre-fermentation maceration at a controlled temperature. When spontaneous fermentation starts, we leave the skins until the end of it. Gravity bleeding to extract flower wine. Aging in old 400-liter French oak barrels for about a year. Subsequent aging in a cement cup underground for two years and refining in the bottle for another year without a label.

We bottle without any intervention or addition, in a descending moon.

Precipitations and cloudy appearance may appear, denoting respectful processing and are a good sign of authenticity.
