Traditional Method Sparkling Wine« Back
Grapes are produced on the estate which is situated inside the Parco del Conero at Numana, roughly one km from the Adriatic coast.
Formed in the medium-upper Pliocene Epoch, the soil differs from lime-clay to sandy lime-clay according to the site.
Montepulciano 50%, Pinot Noir 50%.
After harvest the grapes are placed in the press for a very brief cold maceration. After decantation, the wine is fermented at 18° C with the aid of selected yeasts. Secondary fermentation in the bottle takes place in an 18th century cave where it is aged on the lees for around 3-4 years. After remuage, the wine is disgorged and topped with the addition of a small amount of liqueur d’expedition before receiving its final cork.
Deep pink colour tending towards copper, fine mousse. Delicate fragrance, full and complex. Dry and clean to the palate with a rich toasty character.
Goes well with cocktail canapés and hors d’oeuvres.
