When maceration is completed, the must is separated from the marc and fermentation can be accomplished. In the following spring a part of sweet wine is added as blending and then the wine is poured into the autoclave where the second fermentation takes place in order to obtain its natural effervescence. After this stage, the wine is filtered and bottled.
