Totally destemmed grapes, followed by a slow fermentation, with temperature control up to 28ºC degrees. Soft filtration.
It goes to bottle when is still young to preserve its red colour and fresh flavours do oxidize.
It may age in oak but if so it is for a short period time, no more than few years and almost always in oak vats of big capacity in order to reduce the influence of the oxygen in its ageing.
