Vinification

This wine was made of previously selected grapes from our best vineyards to have a rigorous control of their maturation during several months, to select finally the best ones in their best maturation point. At their arrival at the “Adega”, the grapes were immediately crushed. Then, during the first 6 to 10 days of the alcoholic fermentation, this must was left in prolonged contact with the skins. The fermentation process occurred under a controlled temperature of 25º to 28ºC. The wine matured for 12 months in stainless steel vats, and then more 3 months in wooden casks to gain more structure and complexity before bottling.
