This popular Italian sparkling wine is dry and crisp on the palate and a super wine for aperitif or for that special celebration. The base wines of a Classic Method sparkling wine are made from all or some of the following grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which last grape variety in Italy is generally replaced by different grapes, such as Pinot Blanc (as far as Italian Classic Method spumante is concerned).
The Metodo Classico is produced from indigenous grapes cultivated in a climatically appropriate environment. Carricante harvested early and processed with the greatest care and the sage advice of Josef Reiterer. All the activities are undertaken manually for a brut which explores the black land of Etna.
This unique Brut wine is produced in the hinterland of Palermo from Grecanico and Chardonnay grapes cultivated at more than 500 metres above sea level. Duca Brut is an elegant, complex wine with fruity scents developed in harmony with a distinct aroma of bread crust and is well-balanced, fresh and lively.
VINESTOCK USED: three different Chardonnay clones, white Pinot and a very small amount of White from black-skinned grapes. HARVESTING: carried out by hand, just when the technical experts say it’s the right time to make the best sparkling wine base. The grapes are placed in 14kg plastic containers, sterilised with hot water jets after each usage.
Gaudensius Blanc de Blancs is a spumante produced according to the classic method employing white grapes of Carricante and Chardonnay: Carricante grapes are tipycal of the Etna volcano and grow in the Cavanera Etnea estate, while Chardonnay grapes express all the hilly features of a cru growing in the Borgo Guarine estate, within the Trapani countryside.
Gaudensius is a sparkling wine with a refined bead of continuous and persistent tiny bubbles, distinguished by colours with hints of luminous gold, and a complex flavour that is also of rare elegance. The sparkling process is completed using the “blanc de noirs” method to bring out the sensory characteristics of the Nerello Mascalese grapes.
This dry spumante with rich and fine pérlage and intense and delicate perfume, springs up from a particular “cru” of Chardonnay produced in the vineyard. One perceives well blended, blod yeast tones, and notes of crust of bread and acacia honey in an elegant harmony. Fresh and fragrant-tasting, it has an equilibrated and aristocratic taste.
