VINIFICATION

Soft squeeze of grapes, with immediate separation skins.

The resulting must is placed in steel reservoirs at a controlled temperature of 14-20 degrees Celsius (57-68 Fahrenheit) for about 15-20 days, where the alcoholic fermentation takes place. Subsequently, the wine undergoes several changes of container, reachimg a maturation process in steel tanks for about two months. After this, the wine is placed in autoclaves where it undergoes re-fermentation (spumantizzazione) according to the Martinotti or Charmat methods

REFINEMENT

Following the re-fermentation (about 9 months, long Charmat ) the wine is bottled, where it will refine for about 3 months, before going on the market

ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS

Characteristic straw-yellow colour with greenish tones. Aroma is intense, complex with floral notes and very fruity with aromas ofapple, pear and banana. Taste is soft (characteristic of extra dry), elegant and well structured. Body is well evident and aroma is lingering
