OM Wines writes: The primary fermentation takes about a week, during which time the wine is repeatedly pumped from the bottom of the tank over the 'cap' of solids; after fermentation, the tank is closed and the wine left to macerate for a further 8-10 days, at which point it is drained and pressed. The wine is then aged in cement tanks for 12-14 months before bottling, with only a coarse filtration.
