aimed at producing soft and polished tannins.

At the end of the malolactic fermentation, which terminated by the end of the year for all of the different varieties,

the wine went into wood, where it aged for approximately nine months in large Slavonian oak casks and,

for a small part of the total production, in stainless steel tanks. The bottling took place in December of 2017.
