"Each vineyard is harvested by hand in small boxes, in several steps, and divided by into several lots of grapes with some ripeness. Each lot is brewed in small separate tanks, steel and cement, which are located under the destalking machine, so that the grapes come by the sheer force of gravity in the tanks. Fermentation takes place at a temperature not exceeding -30 to 28 degrees C, and the contact with the skins continues for 25-28 days. After racking, the wine is placed in cement vats and oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. Refining technique: after the completion of malolactic fermentation, 50% of the wine is refined in barrels and French oak barrels and the rest in cement tanks, for about 12 months. Then the wine is assembled in one tank and bottled after a few months." -More at
