A brief period of maceration gives the wine its slightly pink color and determines the action of the aromatic varietal substances that bring out the grapes’ floral, fruity and surprisingly typical characteristics. The long and gradual fermentation cycle together with a sustained period in the presence of yeasts, both in the wine and during re-fermentation, confers delicacy and elegance on this cuveé and makes it persistent on the palate.

Maceration: Cold, for 12-36 hours
Second Fermentation: Charmat method in autoclaves
