More info

The grapes for this wine come from the DOC Prosecco regions in Veneto and Fruili Venezia Giulia. This wine is predominantly made from Glera, a variety which flourishes in this area. The vines are trained according to the traditional espalier method, which maximises sunlight, and have hazelnut coloured shoots producing large, long clusters of golden-yellow berries. The vines are carefully cultivated to optimise the quality of the fruit, with pruning to eliminate excessive shoots, topping and binding the canopy to obtain a suitable microclimate to ensure the berries mature and accumulate good concentration of fruit flavours.

The Glera grapes were gently pressed in a horizontal press followed by slow fermentation of the pure must with selected yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The Pinot Nero grapes underwent skin contact for a period of five to seven days, which resulted in the delicate pink colour. The Glera must and Pinot Nero musts were then refermented together to produce the gentle sparkle in a pressure and temperature controlled autoclave, according to the Charmat method. This lasted approximately 60 days, and when it was complete the sparkling wine was carefully prepared for bottling.
