During this process, grapes lose 35% of their weight, but retain and enhance their unique flavors and aromas. When the grapes reach the desired sugar level, they are softly pressed and vinified in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. 50% of the blend is aged in French Tonneaux for 6-8 months; the remaining part rests in the stainless steel tanks.
