The destemmed grapes are put into the press and 100% of the free-run must is transferred into new barriques after an initial clarification of 12 hours. Here the alcoholic fermentation takes place followed by the malolactic fermentation which will determine the residence times of the wine in barriques (about 6 months). After 5 months and repeated batonage, the wine is transferred into steel tanks. After bottling, Elisena is left to age in the bottle for a few months in the historic cellar.
