The vinification initiates with a spontaneous fermentation developed in 75 Hl natural cement tanks with indigenous yeast, for 14-15 days at a controlled temperature of 28°C. The malolactic fermentation starts in a natural way.
The aging process is made in untoasted 41 Hl French oak casks for about 17 months. The oak casks originate from the noble forests of Allier.
