The must obtained is then let to cold-settle statically and additioned with a indigenous fermentation yeast prepared in advance (3-4 days before) with the best grapes selected from the same grape variety. It is then allowed to ferment slowly instainless steel vats at a precisely controlled temperature (16℃) for approximately 30 to 40 days. The maturation continues in stainless steel vats, during which time also a lengthy series of batonnage processes is carried out at set intervals to produce a well-rounded and full-bodied wine, with a delicate bouquet. After a long sur lie aging process, bottling is deferred until the month of February.
