This Metodo Classico sparkling wine is produced with grapes grown in our estate vineyards in Santa Maria della Versa. The grapes are harvested by hand in 18 kg boxes at the end of August. The grapes are softly pressed into a membrane pneumatic press. The resulting free-run must is then clarified. The alcoholic fermentation is started using selected yeasts and is carried out at a controlled temperature. Once the fermentation is completed, the base-wine is racked and is then ready for the secondary fermentation. The secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle and the wine ages on the lees for a minimum of 36 months at a controlled temperature. The bottles undergo a process known as remuage to push the lees towards the neck of the bottles. After the dégorgement (i.e. the process of removing the lees from the bottle), the sparkling wine is completed. The bottles are refilled with just the base-wine, no sugar is added.
This wine displays a balance of minerality and toasted bread and yeast flavors. Other notes of pear and almond flowers can be found, and the wine has a long finish.
