    Winemaking

    The grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with a 15-day maceration time; then it was naturally malolactic fermented (no inoculation). The wine was aged on 1st use French oak barrels before bottling. The toasting policy for the barrels is intended to highlight the Merlot potential (garagiste toasting).
