Specifications

San Giorgio metodo classico was the first wine produced and marketed by our winery back in 1985. San Giorgio results from the challenge of applying the traditional method of Champagne making to erbaluce grapes. Our most fresh and integer grapes first undergo whole bunch pressing, then the must is cold fermented and clarified. The wine is then bottled and selected strains of yeast are added in order to start the process of bottle re-fermentation. The wine rests on its lees for a period of 36 months, then the bottles are cleaned and filled up. After a further bottle maturation of six months, the Spumante San Giorgio is ready to be uncorked.
