Winemaking : maceration in concrete tank for 25 to 30 days with manual punching down. After racking the wine spends 12 months in barrels of 600 liter oak for about 25% of volume. The remaining 75% of the volume spends 12 months in truncated wooden vats of 50 Hl 70 Hl. After assembly, the livestock is supplemented with a passage from 6 to 8 months in concrete vats. To keep all the aromatic complexity, The Lovebirds is neither filtered nor glued.
