we extract the maximum aromatics.
The alcoholic fermentation is then carried out at controlled temperature.
After depleting the sugars, we let the malolactic fermentation to
develop. This "Joven",or young wine, is stored in stainless steel tanks and bottled after about 10-12 months. Alcohol at bottling 13.5%.
