APPASSIMENTO
:The grapes are left in the wooden crates and placed in an aerated loft for the drying process, which usually lasts approximately 3 weeks.?During this time the grapes lose over 30% of their weight in water.

VINIFICATION
:Following the appassimento technique, the grapes are de-stemmed and delicately crushed to minimize damage to the skin.

After racking, malolactic fermentation is induced.
