Fermentation: Alcoholic fermentation for 7 to 8 days and post fermentation maceration for about 3 weeks in two temperature-controlled steel vats
Maturation: The product remains in the steel vats for about 5 to 6 months, protected by nitrogen to maintain the fruity notes and promote natural tartaric stabilization
