Although this wine is made with an old traditional grape variety, the vinification was carried out in a modern style. The grapes are destemmed and crushed. The fermentation is carried out at controlled temperature, around 23°C . The ageing is carried out in tanks with a small amount of French oak staves to add more complexity and roundness to the blend.
