Vinification: the grapes are harvested into crates with a capacity of about 20 kg and then poured directly into the press, where they are delicately and softly crushed. The must obtained is transferred to temperature-controlled tanks where static decanting takes place, and then ferments in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature (18-20 °C). When fermentation is complete, the wine is kept on the fine lees until spring. This is when the cuvée is created, uniting the wines from the different crus selected. In spring the wine undergoes a second fermentation, in the bottle, followed by a period of maturing in contact with yeasts, in the cool, dark and protected environment of the cellars, in observance of the strict rules that govern the production of “Spumante Metodo Classico” (Classic Method Sparkling Wine).
Excellent as an aperitif, with its personality it is, above all, an excellent way of accompanying all courses of a meal.
