What is the maceration time for making a pink wine?

I normally make red wines, but would like to know more about pink wines. Thanks.

Pink wines are produced by macerating red wine juice on the grape skins for a short period of time, sometimes only for a few hours, and usually just enough to extract a small amount of color and flavor.  Few tannins are extracted during such a short maceration process, but this also means that the wine does not have to be aged for very long.  Pink wines are drinkable quite early, which means that testing and experimentation can be done on rather quick cycles.
