Harvested at the peak of maturity, the grapes were first left to dry on palettes in thermo ventilated rooms. The classic vinification began with crushing in mid-October followed by fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. The wine matured for 20 months in barriques of new French oak. Frequent racking from the lees allowed for bottling without fining, filtration or other physical stabilization. This may result in slight sediment in the bottle.
