immediately upon arrival in the winery the grapes are separated
from the cluster, then poured into vats. There were two manual re-assemblages
daily with a complete re-mixing of the grape skins. The fermentation,
although not controlled mechanically, almost constantly maintained
a temperature of 28°C, ideal for the proper colour and tannin
content. 14 days later the wine was drawn and pressed, then left
in stainless steel vats, after which it was transferred into Slavonian
oak casks for 8 months of final ageing.
