“…well supported by a slightly acid vein that is the counterpoint of the earlier notes of ripe fruit.”
From the vinification of the grapes Chardonnay and Pinot Nero you obtain this classic method wine with intense body and perfumes, slight aroma of yeast, strong and versatile character, suitable for all occasions.
Chardonnay and Pinot Nero clusters are hand-picked into shallow boxes, then the two types of grapes are gently crushed separately. After fermentation the wine is drawn off the gross lees and the Chardonnay and Pinot Nero are blended to 70%-30%. The wine is then stored in steel tanks and bottled the following spring, and cultured yeasts added. After at least 24 months on the lees, the bottles are manually riddled, and the wine is disgorged and bottled.
