After the grape harvest in September, the grapes are pressed to separate the stalks from the grapes and fermented with the skins. Fermentation takes place in steel barrels or vitrified cement for about 1-2 days at a temperature of 20 ° C. When the desired color is reached a soft pressing is carried out, so that the wine finishes fermenting without the skins. After fermentation, the wine is racked at the rate of 2 or 3 weeks for 3 months to remove the dregs. Subsequently the base wine is added with yeasts and sugars in a quantity sufficient to trigger the refermentation process called foaming.
Still in an autoclave, the sparkling wine is filtered to separate it from the dregs that formed during the sparkling process. It then passes into a second autoclave to be bottled. Being only slightly lively, the wine is bottled with a smooth cap.
