To make the base wine, grapes are manually harvested. Once in the wine cellar, clusters are selected, de-stalked and pressed, followed by a twohour maceration. The grape juice obtained is taken to decanting tanks for sedimentation cleaning purposes for 24 hours. Fermentation is conducted in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of around 12-14 °C. The wines produced do not undergo malolactic fermentation to preserve the freshness of the malic acid. Afterwards, the blend is made and the second fermentation takes place. The skimming off process is conducted following the Champenoise method, which involves filling the bottles with the base wine and adding the selected yeasts and sugar. This second fermentation is carried out at a temperature of 18 °C and, once this process is concluded, the sparkling wine is kept in its own lees for 18 months in order to provide creaminess and aromatic complexity. Finally, sediments are removed in bottle holders, wines are disgorged and the expedition liqueur, which defines the Brut sparkling wine category, is added.
