No pesticides are sprayed on the vines and only organic fertilizers are used. The land is ploughed to aerate and enrich the soil, and weedkillers are avoided. Winemaking: The grapes are handpicked, put into small crates, then sorted in the cellar and completely destemmed. They are then cold-macerated for 7 days and fermented under temperature-controlled conditions. The cap is punched twice a day, and the wine stays on the skins for a total of 21 days. Ageing: The wine is aged on the lees in oak barrels (30% new) for 15 months. Malolactic fermentation tends to take place fairly late, and the wine is clarified naturally without fining or filtration. Gravity flow is used for racking and bottling
