To craft this wine, the grapes underwent a gentle destemming and crushing process, followed by a 14-day fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Throughout this period, the wine was meticulously pumped over twice daily, facilitating the extraction of flavors and colors. After pressing off the skins, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in a carefully selected combination of French and American oak barrels. The aging process took place over 15 months in these barrels, allowing the tannins to soften and the flavors to intensify and harmonize.
