Characteristics

Pale straw yellow sparkling wine with greenish highlights and a fine persistent bead. Pronounced fruity nose, with white-fleshed fruit, apples and peaches, and floral notes of wisteria and acacia blossom, completed by hints of crusty bread and yeast. On the palate it is well balanced and delicately dry, characterised by a pleasant acidulous flavour and good structure. Excellent as an aperitif and for toasts, and a good accompaniment to fine biscuits. It also goes well with vegetable and light fish hors d’oeuvres, soups and starters, pasta and risottos. Serve at 8-10° C.

Vinification

Manual harvest at optimum technological ripeness, crushing-destemming, pressing, cold settling and addition of cultured yeasts. Controlled cold fermentation at 14° C. Fermentation is followed by racking, light clarification to stabilise the proteins and subsequent filtration. Bottling is performed after second fermentation in steel pressure tanks (autoclaves), where the internal pressure increases for a month to around 5 atm until fermentation is complete. The wine is then clarified before final filtration.
