Production area: Friuli Venezia Giulia
Vine: 100 % Ribolla Gialla
Vine training system: Guyot method – sixth planting distances with 4500 vines per hectare.
Grape harvesting: The harvest begins in mid-September with the verification of the grape ripening in different locations of the vineyards and continues until the beginning of October. Subsequently, the grapes are taken to the cellar for further qualitative selection and then destined for wine making.
Wine making:The grapes are delicately de-stemmed and immediately and undergo a light cryomaceration for a short period. Subsequently they are pressed delicately and the must is obtained and placed inside stainless steel containers where the first alcoholic fermentation takes place. The wine is left to age in the same containers for a few months. The bottling follows in the presence of complete oxidation. A further 40 months of aging in its yeasts enhances the refining process. The bottles are then placed horizontally on special racks, “called pupitres”, and are manually and daily rotated and tilted to allow the yeasts to settle towards the bottle neck, before
the final disgorgement or dégorgement, called “à la volée”, just as ancient art and tradition dictates.
Colour: Straw yellow with light golden reflections.
Sensory notes: An elegant sparkling wine with an exquisite perlage. It has fruity and intense aromas of apricot and peach, which allow the olfactory to perceive a note of yeast and toasted bread. The minerality gives freshness and harmony to various dishes.
Gastronomic pairing: Perfect as an appetizer with crudité or pinzimonio (raw vegetables), white meats, scallops with citrus flavours that enhance its aromas..
