This is followed by a spontaneous fermentation in concrete tanks, with temperatures between 22°C and 28°c for about 7 days. This is followed by a soft pressing and ageing in stainless steel tanks for 6 months at a temperature of 18° C. This process allows the maintenance of the freshness and fruit notes.
