Destemming is definitely followed by pre-fermentation chilly maceration is definitely followed by alcoholic fermentation at 28C, with malolactic in barrels. Only natural yeast from your grapes is used and the wine is definitely by hand punched down and remaining to ferment in tanks for 21 to 28 days.
