Wine production

Vinification
The grapes are pressed and the juice is given a brief, 48-hour maceration on the skins, then the must is pressed off and given a low-temperature gravity settling and storage.
The must then goes to steel pressure tanks for sparkling-wine fermentation.
Secondary fermentation
The wine receives its effervescence through utilisation of the Martinotti-Charmat method, at a temperature of ca. 18°C. When the wine reaches an internal pressure of 5 atmospheres, it is filtered and bottled.
Ageing
In steel pressure tanks for 1-2 months.

Tasting

His rosé sparkling wine beguiles the taster first of all with its appearance, an utterly inimitable peony pink hue.
Then the eye is enchanted by a slender but dense bead of irrepressible pin-point bubbles that presage the wine’s appreciable crispness. The nose is intensely redolent of delicate notes of rose petals, lime blossoms, and wild berry.
The mousse expands with beautiful proportion in the mouth, giving the palate its crisp fruit nuances and a sense of exquisite balance. Its smooth finish makes this wine perfect both as an aperitif wine as well as a versatile partner with a wide variety of
fine dishes, ranging from seafood antipasti, salmon to the classic soups and lighter meat dishes.
Best enjoyed at 6-8°C.
