The selected grapes are placed on a sorting table comprising different sections.  First, the loose grapes and the must from the best bunches are separated from the rest.  The health of the grapes is maintained by discarding any less than ideal bunches.  Subsequently any bunches selected are divided into two parts: tips and shoulders.  The shoulders are used for making Reserva wines, and the tips – the lower part – are used for making young wines via carbonic maceration.  Experience has shown that the maturity of the grape varies between the upper and lower part of the bunch.  For this reason each part is used for a different wine.  Finally the destemmed grapes are washed in their own juice before reaching the tank.
