The free-run must is then collected to be fermented in steel containers at 15°C. The wine is aged on the lees for 40 days before being bottled, after which it ages for a further 2 months.
Organoleptic characteristics: The intense straw yellow with flashes of gold foreshadows the complex nose of this wine.

The finish is pleasant, fresh and slightly balsamic, with a hint of medicinal herbs and rosemary.
