Vinification and maturation
The ripe and healthy grapes are pressed immediately after harvesting, and the must is then stored for 24 hours at a temperature of 5°-7°C. (41°-45°F.), in order to enrich it with the aromatic substances contained in the skins. Temperature-controlled fermentation ensues, followed by a longish period of maturation on the wine’s own natural lees.
