Winemaking and aging: destemming and crushing of the grapes, soft pressing and fermentation at controlled temperature in barrique. The Tocai grapes are dried for one month with the development of the noble rot of the grapes. The Sauvignon grapes are not dried. The Tocai ferments and refines on its noble lees in barrique, the Sauvignon ferments and refines on its noble lees in stainless steel vats. The lees of both of the wines are frequently mixed in order to increase the thickness and the harmony of the wine.
