Vinification The grapes are gathered in small crates and gently crushed. The obtained flower undergoes static clarification. The must is then inoculated with selected yeasts and left to ferment at a controlled temperature.

In order to finally turn it into sparkling, the obtained wine is additioned with sugar and racked into pressure tanks where the second fermentation occurs. The dioxide carbon that is produced dissolves inside the fermenting mass – since the tank is an armored container built to hold up to 9 bar pressure stages.

Ageing Once it has become sparkling, the product reaches a 5 bar pressure stage and ages on yeasts for a few months.

The product is then clarified and filtered before bottling.
