||White sparkling classic met.
||60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Nero
||San Floriano del Collio (GO)
||Second ten days of August.
||The grapes are selected while still on the vine and picked in small cases at first light, before the sun has time to warm the pulp. Very soft pressing extracts only the very best of the juice, which is allowed to settle overnight in a completely oxygen-free environment. Alcoholic fermentation takes place partly in steel and partly in small oak casks at temperatures of no higher than 14 °C.
||On the lees continues until the following spring. The next step is tirage, or bottle fermentation on the lees, for more than four years.
||An excellent aperitif that goes beautifully with fish-based preparations of all kinds.
