The season was great in many ways, it was the warmest, the earliest and without a doubt one of the best for developing excellent fruit quality. The month of February had unusually high temperatures, followed by slightly colder temperatures in March, which created excellent preconditions for the development of flavors. The summer was long, very hot, which allowed the development of higher levels of sugar than usual. The grapes were harvested by hand at the end of August, reaching a sugar level of 24. The grapes are carefully selected at the best maturity and placed in crates.
- Cooling the grapes
- Crushing and removing the stalks
- Clarifying the must
- Fermentation at controlled temperature
- When the sugar concentration is at the desired level the fermentation stops with a sharp drop in temperature
- Stabilization and clarification processes
