Spumante Brut METODO CLASSICO
“San Cristoforo Rosè”
Rich and intense bouquet, fruity and bold, thanks to the Nebbiolo grape that perfectly lends itself to this type of wine. The taste is very fruity and persuasive, with an endless sequence of sweet and sour notes. Ideal serving temperature is 6°-8°C. This sparkling wine is for celebrations and joyful moments. Excellent as an aperitif, but also perfectly enjoyable with first courses.
COLOR: Salmon pink with orange highlights
GRAPE: 100% Nebbiolo
VINEYARD: San Cristoforo hill in Neive
EXPOSURE: South and West
YIELD PER HL/HA: About 80 qt/hectare
HARVEST: Manual, the end of August/first days of September
CELLAR TEMPERATURE: 12°–15°C constant
VINIFICATION: The precious Nebbiolo grapes are softly pressed for two hours and the stalks, husks and seeds are immediately removed. The clear must starts its fermentation at 18°-20°C in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Then it is kept refrigerated until spring for the consequent bottling and fermentation in bottle (traditionally defined as Metodo Classico, Classic Method). After a period of 24-30 months with its own yeast, the Spumante is ready, showing a small and persistent perlage. After opening and disgorging the bottle, the Spumante is sealed with the “mushroom” stopper and ready to be enjoyed.
