Maceration in a stainless steel tank and press at a temperature of approx. of 29-31°C. Stage: One year in cask, and bottling the second year.
The setting at the end of May took place with high luminosity and temperature that, associated with the high number of pollen in the air, was perfect for flowering. From here on, the occasional rainfall was not a concern. In the first 15 days of August, there was a heat wave that interrupted the growth cycle, where there was a temp. minimum 35ºC and relative humidity below 10%. The last days of August were cooler with light rainfall for two days which favored maturation.
