Extra Brut
Metodo Classico

The rows of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay span over twenty years of our company. The grapes we obtain from these vineyards give us the concentration needed for making a fresh, aromatic Metodo Classico.

Variety:
Pinot nero and Chardonnay

Vineyard of production:
contiguous to the winery

Average age of vineyards:
20 years

First year of production:
2009

Winemaking:
Soft pressing of the grapes to obtain the best part of the must, a 50% yield. Static clarification follows, after which alcoholic fermentation begins under controlled temperatures of 15-18° C (59-64° F). Racking and aging for a few months follows, then tirage with the addition of selection yeasts and the beginning of secondary fermentation in the bottle, which it undergoes for 40-60 days at 14-16° C (57-61° F).

Malolactic fermentation:
Not carried out.

Aging:
In the bottle on its lees for a long time, followed by disgorgement with no added liqueur d’expédition.

Tasting notes:
The rows of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay span over twenty years of our company. The grapes we obtain from these vineyards can now give us the concentration needed for making a fresh, aromatic Metodo Classico. The slow secondary fermentation in the bottle and the choice not to add liqueur d’expédition allow this wine to come alive with freshness and elegance. It has notes of yeast and hazelnuts, with a pleasing acidity that makes this perfectly fit for aperitivo. It also pairs well with all types of dishes, particularly fish-based, salumi, vegetable flans, and white meats.
