VINEYARD AGE

10/35 years

VINIFICATION

Soft squeeze of grapes, with immediate separation from skins. The must, which is of a natural pink colour, varying in intensity depending on the vintage, undergoes discoloration by a process of hyper-oxygenation. The resulting must is placed in steel vats 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, reaching a maturation process in steel tanks for about two months. After this, the wine is placed in autoclaves where it undergoes re-fermentation (spumantizzazione). After the re-fermentation (about 3-4 months) the wine is bottled

REFINEMENT

Refine for about 30-40 days in glass bottles

ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS

Characteristic pale pink colour. Aroma is intense, complex, with floral notes and very fruity with aromas of apple, pear, banana and cherry. Taste is soft (characteristic of extra dry), elegant and well structured. Body is well evident and aroma is lingering

GASTRONOMIC ACCOMPANIMENT

Excellent with a starter (antipasto), delicious throughout the entire meal, particularly good withfish. Good with white meats, cheeses. Perfect with pizza
