classical method spumante millesimato - Degorgement november 2017
Grape varieties
100% Pinot Nero
after a careful selection, the grapes are harvested by hand, immediately followed by a soft pressing. The must obtained is left to decant and then put into thermostatically controlled stainless steel tanks (17°-18°). The following spring the base wine, together with selected yeasts and sugar is bottled. The bottles are positioned horizontally in large stacks at a controlled temperature of 12°-14°, where they rest for at least 36 months to obtain their spume (2nd fermentation). Successively the bottles undergo riddling ‘remuage’ so as to move the lee sediment from the side of the bottles and deposit this sediment at the top of the now upside down bottle. Degorgement follows the lees are removed and the bottles are topped up with ‘liqueur d’expédition’. The spumante is then corked and left to rest for several months before its sale
