Place of origin: hill belt of Faedo and Pressano at 350 - 500 m of altitude
Vineyard: the cultivation system is the traditional pergola of Trento. However, a short and discreet pruning and thinning of the bunches of grapes halve the production which would otherwise flourish.
Grape Variety: 60 % Chardonnay, 40 % Pinot Nero
Vinification: in white with fermentation in barrels for the Chardonnay
Ageing: preparation of the "cuvee” in the spring following grape harvest.
Bottling and slow second fermentation at a temperature of 11°C.
Then matured in bottles for about five years, with periodic stirrings in yeast suspensions.
Then follows the phase of "remuage" on "pupitres".
At the end of this cycle the dégorgement with the addition of a "liqueur d'expedition" (dissolving either cane sugar or beet sugar in a quantity of wine and adding this to the bottle after disgorgement) is performed.
The sparkling wine thus obtained matures for a further 6/8 months before being marketed,
Colour: light yellow with golden reflections, the "perlage" presents a very thin and persistent grain.
Aroma: intense and complex, slightly spiced and with the scent of ripe fruit
Taste: all-encompassing foaming but not harsh. Sensation of softness and richness with long persistence, thanks to a good structure and equilibrium
Recommended accompaniments: it is perfect with hors d’oeuvres and fish but is also excellent with all courses.
