the wine-making technique follows the traditional method consisting of a 3 daily top ups during the first week and of one daily check and top up during the week that follows. The temperature for fermentation is set at 22° C during the first week and at 28° C during the second. Once the phase of alcoholic fermentation is concluded, the processes of skin racking and softly pressing may start.
