In September, after being harvested, the grapes are shortly left to macerate on the skins to transfer the wine its so sought-after hue.
The resulting must is left to ferment at 18°C for 10/12 days, then left on its “fine lees” for a short period in order to strengthen its colour over time. It is then racked to pressurized vats, where bubbles form. The process lasts approximately 20-25 days and it is followed by a few days of ageing on the lees. The wine is then bottled and left to age in the bottle for a few weeks.
Bead: Very fine and continuous.
Colour: Soft pink.
