Vinification

Grapes from selected vineyards for a Reserve wine. The ripening of the
grapes is monitored very carefully to find the optimal moment for manual
harvesting. At the Adega site, there is total destemming and clarification at a low temperature for 18-24 hours. Alcoholic fermentation at 15ºC then begins, followed by slight, partial ageing in French and American oak barrels with batônnage sur lies. The varieties were monitored separately during ageing and the final blend was then created and refined.
