Fruit of intuition and a passion for this type of wine, this sparkling Metodo Classico is made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes, destined by nature and tradition to produce great Gattinara DOCG. The first vintage year was 2011, after several trial years resulting in a new, original and very refined wine. In this version too, Gattinara Nebbiolo expresses its aristocratic nature, maintaining the unconfoundable characteristics of this species of vine and the areas in which it is cultivated.
Harvest: Harvesting takes place around mid-September, 2/3 weeks earlier than that of Nebbiolo grapes for the production of Gattinara DOCG. in order to guarantee ideal acidity
Vinification: Soft pressing. The first fermentation is in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16° - 18°C for about 20 days. The second fermentation (presa di spuma) starts in March/April
Ageing: Once maturation is completed, the bottles are placed on pupitres and rotated manually each day for about 20-25 days, after which degorgement takes place. Since this is a Pas Dosè sparkling wine, during the degorgement, only the same wine is used for topping up, in order to preserve intact the Nebbiolo characteristics
Color: Bright soft pink with shades of red onion skin
Bouquet: Intense, slightly fruity, with hints of bread crusts and yeast
Taste: Dry and refreshing, agreeably sharp and slightly tasty, lingering long in perfect harmony, with hints of small red fruits and delicately bitter to the palate
