Chardonnay Brut Sparkling Classic Method
From a selection of Chardonnay vineyards in Oltrepò Pavese a fragrant Classic Method sparkling wine (Spumante).
Vineyards: Owned vineyards planted with specific clonal selections are trained with the typical vertical shoot position (VSP) trainings like replacement-cane or cordon-spur. The soil is a succession of marl and clay.
Winemaking: Soft pressing of the grapes and primary fermentation at controlled temperature are made to obtain the base wine which is then bottled to start the secondary 9 month fermentation which occurs thanks to selected yeast and provide the wine new flavours and create the characteristic bubbles. After disgorgement and corking wine is left 3 more months to ageing.
Tasting Notes: Creamy foam, fine persistent bubbles, lemon colour with hints of green, intense and clean at nose with fruit aromas. Dry at palate, soft, well balanced with elegant texture.
Potential for ageing: Drink now but has potential for ageing up to 20 months
Alcohol level: 12% Vol.
Pairing: Normally used as aperitif it can be paired also with delicately tasty food.
Service temperature: 6/8 °C
