White vinification with spontaneous fermentation in a cement vats The must must have an initial sugar concentration of at least 21 ° to ensure the future alcohol content necessary for refinement and maturation. The spring following the harvest, the new wine is transferred into oak and chestnut barrels of different sizes, which are specially left full, so that its biological aging can begin under "flor" yeasts, the same yeasts that led to the alcoholic fermentation . The vesting period must not last less than 8 years.

Excellent as an aperitif, but also as a dessert. It enhances its qualities even more if it is accompanied with almond-based sweets or pastries.
