VINIFICATION AND AGEING
The grapes are harvested manually in small 16 kg crates and are destemmed. Maceration takes place for 6-8 hours allowing a slight extraction of colour from the skins. After soft pressing of the whole grapes, with 50% extraction of firstpressing must, settling takes place for 12 hours at 16°C. Alcoholic fermentation proceeds for about 12 days at 18°C. At the end of this period, the wine matures in stainless steel until the following July after harvest. The second fermentation and ageing sur lies in the bottle extend for at least 36 months, followed by 2 months after disgorgement.
colour: vivid pink with bright reflections, fine perlage and soft, persistent foam.
bouquet: its fragrant bouquet opens with pleasant citrus notes, such as tangerine, and unique hints of red berries, including raspberry, currants and wild strawberries. The finish is elegant and reminiscent of bread crust.
flavour: the mouthfeel is bold, fresh and flavourful, reflecting the bouquet on the finish.
Its balance and scent make it a perfect aperitif. It is a great match to fine cured meats and light dishes, such as risotto, soups and vegetables. Excellent with shellfish and raw seafood.
