VINIFICATION
Only certain grape bunches are selected for crushing. Afterwards, the must is macerated for eight to twelve days in vertical vinification tanks, which encourages a considerable extraction of color and polyphenolic substances. This process adds depth and complexity to the wine. Upon completion of the malolactic fermentation, the wine matures for six months in Slavonian oak barrels.
