VINIFICATION AND AGEING
Nero d’Avola, cultivated on deep soils of dark clay at 300 metres above sea level, is harvested with a degree of sugar ripeness and acidity suitable for obtaining a fresh and mineral sparkling base. Soft pressing follows, which allows for the production of a white wine from black grapes, without the need for further processing. After a period of ageing on the lees of about 3-4 months, the base wine is made sparking in an autoclave (Charmat method), where it remains for another 3 months before being bottled.
Colour: straw yellow with light reflections ranging from greenish to platinum. Fine and persistent bubbles.
Bouquet: delicate hints of cherry, hawthorn, elderberry and jasmine.
flavour: harmonious, fine, persistent and creamy.
Pleasant as an aperitif, excellent with raw fish hors d’oeuvres, seafood or vegetable risottos, grilled fish.
