Technical notes

The three grape varieties come from vineyards which are specifically cultivated for sparkling wine and which are sited on hillsides at mid- highaltitude. Grapes are refrigerated overnight (Chardonnay and Pinot Nero only) and then undergo delicate pressing to obtain a premium quality must for careful, closely monitored vinification. Each variety is fermented separately in steel at a controlled temperature of 14-16°C and then rest on the lees for a number of months. The different wines are then blended and liqueur de tirage is added. The wine is bottled and stored horizontally for secondary fermentation in the modern cellar at 11-12°C, followed by resting on the lees for a minimum of 38 months. No liqueur d’expédition is added during disgorgement but the bottles are topped up with wine from other bottles to create a product free from added sugars.

Tasting notes

In the glass, the wine is straw in colour with golden hues. Its intense bubbles are very fine and long-lasting. On the nose, there is a succession of diverse scents, starting off with notes of citrus and white-fleshed fruits, before revealing different herbal aromas (mint) and hints of the forest (ferns, resin) and before finishing with touches of spice (ginger, cardamom). Decidedly fresh and lively on the palate, the entire dynamic taste experience is savoury throughout and carried along by an extraordinarily fine and allencompassing effervescence. Enticingly pure aromatic finish with hints of spice and dried fruits. The wine’s tangible viscosity softly counterbalances the absence of sugars.
