After being collected, the grapes are destemmed and squeezed. The resulting liquid is driven into small fermentation tanks provided with refrigeration systems. Maceration enzymes are then added, which allows a maximal extraction of must, colouring matter and tannins. Later the selected yeasts are also added in order to start alcoholic fermentation. Throughout this period, which lasts among 4 and 8 days, rootstock is watered several times a day. The reassembly is scheduled depending on the maturation state of the grapes. The whole fermentation process is developed at a temperature between 25ºC a 28 ºC.
