Vinification: the must is obtained through a soft squeeze of the grapes, with immediate separation from the skins, and is stored in steel vats, at a temperature of 14 - 18° for a period of 10 - 12 days. Following several stages of decanting, it undergoes maturation in steel tanks for about 2 months. Subsequently the wine is placed in autoclaves, where re-fermentation takes place according to the Martinotti or Charmat method. On conclusion of this process, after approximately 3 months, the spumante is bottled and left to refine for a further 2 months before going on the market.
Organoleptic characteristics: Straw-yellow colour with greenish tones. Intense, fruity, fresh and aromatic aroma with floral notes of apple, banana and citrus fruits. Unique, evocative and distinguished, the taste is soft (characteristic of an extra dry wine) and elegant with a captivating structure. Excellent lingering aroma.
