Description

Grapes grown and vinified in the hills of Cartizze are treated with great care. The base wine is placed in pressurized tanks for the prise de mousse and ferments for around three weeks at a controlled temperature of between 14 and18 °C. Once the desired pressure has been reached, (approx. 6 bar) the wine is chilled to stop fermentation and encourage stabilization. The wine then rests on the lees for around three months to encourage natural maturation before filtering and isobaric bottling.

Sensory & emotional characteristics

Straw yellow in colour with extremely fine bubbles. Intense, fragrant and elegant on the nose with notes of acacia blossom, citrus fruits and yellow peaches. Fresh and bright on the palate, full and flavoursome, with a sophisticated finish of ripe fruit and wild flowers.

Food Pairing

Excellent as a soft, rounded aperitif, even if its rare and delicate fragrance makes it particularly suitable for drinking at the end of a meal with dry petits fours, panettone, sweet cakes or fresh fruit.
