TIMES OF HARVEST AND WINE-MAKING
Grapes are harvested during the second decade of September and, after a meticulous selection, are stemmed, crushed and left in contact with their skins for a short time (approx. 15 hours) at a low temperature so that the typical scents of this variety can be extracted. The ordinary wine-making process takes place after that with a white-wine fermentation process at a controlled temperature, in the presence of selected yeasts.
