Vinification
After a soft pressing, the must is placed inside steel tanks where the primary alcoholic fermentation begins, which normally lasts about 9/10 days. In this period, the winemaker decides, in his opinion, to add selected yeasts to control the fermentation parameters and improve flavor and aromas. Once the desired alcohol content has been reached, this fermentation is stopped at a low temperature. After the last stabilization and filtration operations, the wines are bottled.
