VINESTOCK USED: Pink Inzolia and Chardonnay.
WINE MAKING METHOD: A gentle pressing of the whole bunches in a pneumatic press with central bellows and fermentation in stainless steel, thermostatically controlled wine vats, produces the wine that is ideal as a “sparkling wine base”. During the spring after harvesting, this is re-fermented in the bottle at a controlled temperature and lies on its lees for a further 12 months. After uncorking and the addition of the “liqueur d’expédition” it stays four more months for refining in a temperature controlled environment.

PERLAGE: Very fine and lasting.
BOUQUET: Has a rich bouquet, permitting the yeasts to be noticed
TASTE: Full, balanced with a good softness and a nice fresh tang.
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 12.5% by volume.
HOW BEST SAVOURED: Wonderful as an aperitif, ideal on fruit salads.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: around 8-10° C
