Making Techniques 50% of the grapes are dried in the sunlight, for a minimum of four weeks, over suitable mats and delimited by thick walls made of volcanic stone. The remaining grapes mature on the plant until September. Once the fermentation has started, the grapes previously dried are added to the base wine and left macerating during about three months, until a balance between alcohol content and residual sugar is achieved.42 months in French oak barrels and 6 months in stainles steel vats
