Subsequently, prior to destemming and without crushing, they are taken to the tanks where they ferment for 15 days at 25 degrees, at this time they are drilled and traced slightly with the idea of ​​making a selective extraction and preserving all their fruit. The wine then spends a short period of eight months in French and American oak barrels, with a capacity of 220 liters. It remains in the barrel for eight months in which the wine has been in the dark and fresh cellar without making a single racking. Then it is bottled.
