VINIFICATION AND AGEING
The grapes are harvested manually in small 16 kg crates. After soft pressing of the whole grapes with 45% extraction of the first-pressing 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 30 months, followed by 2 months after disgorgement.
colour: pale straw yellow, typical of Pinot Noir, decorated with soft foam and a very fine, continuous and persistent perlage.
bouquet: broad and reminiscent of bread crust, with mineral and floral hints of wisteria and elder. Fruity notes are typical of the red grape variety from which it is obtained: small red fruits, including currants and raspberry with pretty hints of citrus.
flavour: the mouthfeel is bold, fresh and flavourful, reflecting the bouquet on the finish.
An excellent apéritif, it pairs well with fine cured meats and hors d’oeuvre. Because of its structure, it can be paired throughout the meal with risotto and delicate pasta dishes, seafood and sushi.
