||White sparkling classic method brut
||Municipality of Provaglio d’Iseo (BS)
||Altitude: 200 m. a.s.l. Exposure: South-West on a slight slope.
|Composition of the land
||The red soil is calcareous, with clay and silt content.
||From the last 10 days in August to the first 10 days in September. Only by hand and with strict grape selection on the vine.
||Taken from the vine, the small crates of Chardonnay are left overnight in a refrigerating room. The whole clusters are then pressed to obtain a 60% yield. The first-pressing must rests for 24 hours at low temperature to foster clarification and lysis of varietal aromas. Slow fermentation takes place at 16 °C to preserve all the fragrances. The basic wine is aged on the lees for about 7 months in stainless steel tanks; bottle fermentation follows in May.
||Perfect for aperitifs with vegetable puffs and marinated salmon canapés, to be preferred with delicate starters, especially hot and cold fish dishes. Serve with light first courses, seafood risotto, and vegetarian pasta. Savour with semi-ripe goat cheese.
