After de-stemming, the grapes are moved to a vat containing dry ice, which brings the temperature down to 6-8° C, followed by mild carbonic maceration, three days of cold pre-fermentative maceration, then the temperature is increased to about 18° C. The alcohol fermentation is started using natural yeasts, with the first racking after three-four days. The wine is moved to tonneaux of various woods to complete alcohol fermentation and ensuing malolactic fermentation, with return to steel for ageing, light filtering and bottling.
Ambient yeasts. 5,000 bottles of IGT wine.
