Through a meticulous process of punching down and pumping over, the wine develops its complex aromas while preserving the fruitiness and elegance that are characteristic of this grape variety. Partial maturation in 225-liter barrels imparts an additional layer of aromatic complexity, enhancing the overall sensory experience.
