Technical notes

Vinification: the grapes, harvested towards the first ten days of September and transferred to the cellar in small perforated boxes of 20 kg each, are pressed a few hours after harvesting in a very soft and delicate way using a press and the must obtained is left to settle for 12/24 hours at 8/10 degrees of temperature. After the time neces-sary for a good clarification, the must is decanted and brought to about 16 degrees in temperature to facilitate the start of alcoholic fermentation which lasts about a month. At the end of fermentation, the must is left to rest for a few days after which it is racked and placed in steel containers until the following spring when it is prepared for the second fermentation, the one that takes place in the bottle where our Blanc de blans undergo-es that transformation mainly thanks to the yeast and acquire that perlage, that creaminess, that complexity and that fragrance that distinguish it.
