Grape: Pinot Noir (100%) Training system: Guyot Vines per hectare: 5000 Vineyards facing: north-east
The grapes, harvested by hand in an estate vineyard identified as parcel n. 137 of the land registry of the municipality of Santa Maria della Versa, are softly pressed and the skins are removed. The free-run must is then clarified. The alcoholic fermentation is started using selected active yeasts and is carried out at a controlled temperature. Once the fermentation is complete, the base-wine is racked and is then ready for the second fermentation. The second 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) and the addition of the liqueur d’expédition, the sparkling wine is completed.
Sight: soft and persistent bubbles, pale straw-yellow colour. Nose: rich and complex bouquet. Notes of yeast and bread crust are pleasantly intertwined with notes of pear and almond flowers. Palate: creamy, sapid, mineral and well-balanced with a long finish. The structure of the Pinot Noir is pleasantly supported by the minerality of our soils. Suggested pairings: perfect as a pre-lunch or pre-dinner drink, it goes well with starters, risotto or pasta with delicate sauces, fish, shellfish and white meat. Service temperature: 8 °C
