Afterwards until spring the wine ages in stainless steel tanks and during this period the malolactic fermentation and periodical stirring operations take place. Later the wine is put partly in barriques and partly in barrels, made up of French oak, where it ages for one year. Only eight months bottling the wine is introduced onto the market.
