Pinot Brut Spumante
Single variety Pino nero, vinified off the skins.
Alluvial basin of the Piave river.
Harvested by hand in late August.
Soft pressing of the grapes directly in the press, cold settling of the must for 48 hours, then initiation of the alcohol fermentation at a controlled temperature with introduction of selected yeasts, with a part in stainless steel vats and a part in barriques.
Left on the lees for several months, where a percentage which varies based on the year is inoculated with selected bacteria to initiate the malolactic fermentation. Refermentation in autoclave (Charmat long method) for over a year, then bottling and aging in the bottle for a further 12 months before being released to market. Interesting also after several years of aging.
An assertive spumante, good balance between its acid and alcohol components with a fruity, mature bouquet, with tones of toasted almonds and apricot. The aromas of yeast and bread are very evident. Superb in the mouth, complex and full on the palate.
Ideal with a great many dishes, excellent with oysters, raw seafood, and any kind of fish.
