The self-clearing must was left to ferment slowly with wild yeast from the vineyard (spontaneous fermentation) in traditional, large wooden barrels in the perfect atmosphere provided in the estate cellar. The wine aged on its lees in wooden barrels for several months to build its distinctive character with deep aromas of fruit and elegance.
