PRODUCTION AREA: Valdobbiadene / Conegliano
VINIFICATION: The base wine is put into pressurized tanks for the prise de mousse. Thereit ferments for 18-20 days, with the aid of selected yeasts, at a controlled temperature of 14-16 °C (57-61 °F). When the desired pressure has been obtained (around 6 bars), the wine is chilled to - 4° C in order to arrest the fermentation and encourage stabilization. The sparkling wine is then kept at a controlled temperature of 8-10 °C (46-50 °F) for at least a month, in order to favor its natural maturation in contact with the yeasts that have deposited on the bottom of the pressurized tank. At the end of this phase, filtration and isobaric bottling is carried out.
TASTING NOTE: a sparkling wine with a clean, pleasantly fruity bouquet, reminiscent of rennet apples and peach blossom. Its flavor is rounded and well-balanced.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Perfect as an aperitif, it is ideal with fish or cheese appetizers, or even with a meal of delicately flavored dishes.
