Winemaking

The vineyards use the traditional training method, known as “Metodo Spalliera”, where the stem can be as long as one meter and tied to a horizontal wire, assuring a high quality final product, and emphasizing the aromatic fruity features. Grapes are harvested during the month of September. The grapes are soft pressed and fermentation occurs at 64°F in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. These two significant steps yield a consistent quality wine, while maintaining the typical fruity bouquet with hints of golden delicious apples and white fruits. To obtain small and fine bubbles called “perlage” our expert oenologists make a selection of natural yeasts.

Three months Charmat ageing, followed by at least two months in the bottle.

Tasting Notes

Straw-yellow color with fruity aromas, floral notes and green apple; lively and harmonious taste finishing with a light, pleasant sweetness. Excellent as an aperitif, or mixed into brunch and dinner cocktails. Also, pairs well with dishes such as pasta or chicken.
