Sweet Sparkling Charmat Method
Oltrepò Pavese Moscato Spumante dolce D.O.C.
Sparkling wine from Muscat grape vineyards of Oltrepò Pavese; the Oltrepò Pavese area has a long tradition in cultivating and producing muscat grape based wines. The Charmat Method provides the wine with a fruity, refreshing balance; medium-sweet, intense and balanced white sparkling wine.

Winemaking: Grapes are gently pressed and the sweet wine is put in a pressured tank where the creamy mousse develops at controlled temperature and pressure during the fermentation. The fermentation is interrupted by a sudden must temperature lowering; the expected unfermented sugar remains in the wine.
Tasting Notes: The bubbles create a creamy and fine mousse; the wine has a lemon-green colour; at nose it’s intense, aromatic, fresh. At palate sweetness and acidity contribute to an excellent balance which benefits of the persistent fruity flavours and aromatic notes.
