Red Wine – DO Emporda

The winged horse Pegasus identified EMPORION on coins (drachmas) minted in the colony during the age of the Greeks and later of the Romans.
The different varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel fermentation tanks kept at a constant temperature of 24 ºC. Two pump-overs were carried out every day, emptying the tanks 30-40 days after the start of fermentation, depending on the variety.Prolonged vatting was determined by tasting.
Malolactic fermentation took place in the tank.
The wine underwent minimal clarification and filtering treatment before being bottled.
