Alcoholic fermentation takes place for 10 to 15 days. The fermentation ends when the wine contains between 1 and 2 grams of sugar per liter, at which time it is completely dry, with little presence of sugars. However, there are more poor house white wine is completely dry and usually maintain a certain amount of residual sugar to achieve greater aromatic intensity.
