Grapes are collected and transported to the cellar in crates. Subsequently they undergo a brief maceration and then are gently pressed according to careful manual programs. The savvy usage of biotechnologies and cold allows a slow alcoholic fermentation with a controlled temperature of 13°C in stainless steel tanks. In spring, the resulting wine is put into the bottles where the prise de mousse takes place. Then bottles are staked in appropriate underground galleries where temperature is constantly around 12°C. After years of aging in these underground galleries, our Alta Langa wine is ready for remuage and degorgement operations.
