The harvest is planned according to phenolic ripeness, in other words, the moment in which the best tannins to anthocyanins ratio is achieved. After the manual grape picking, grapes undergo a de-stemming and treading procedure.
The alcoholic fermentation and soaking takes place in stainless steel tanks at a constant temperature of 20-22 °C. Pumping over is carried out twice a day in order to keep a damped must top and distil pigments from skins. During alcoholic fermentation must is left on peels for 8 to 10 days depending on the quality of the grapes for that year and the phenolic ripeness.

The wine is then refined in bottles. The dry residue is equal to 24 grams per litre.
