Vino Spumante di Qualità
The desire to experiment and the love of native grape varieties come together in this traditional method sparkling wine. The oldest vineyards inherited from the Falconieri family are cultivated with traditional red grape varieties trained on the pergola. The very slow ripening induced by this vine training system led Remo to experiment in the 1990s with vinification as a sparkling wine, resulting in a rosé of outstanding charm.
Traditional red grapes
Pergola, in moraine soils. Altitude: approx. 320 m above sea level Exposure: south, south-westerly Average age: 30 years
At least 30 months on lees
In the cellar
After soft pressing the whole grapes, a temperature-controlled fermentation process begins. The must remains in contact with the skins for the duration of pressing only. The wine is then bottled and undergoes a second fermentation process in the bottle. After spending at least 48 months maturing, the lees are removed from the bottles, which are topped up. The bottles undergo manual rémuage (riddling) on racks known as pupitres and dégorgement (disgorging). After a further six months of bottle ageing, Rosé Brut sparkling wine is ready to be uncorked.
In the glass
Colour: dull ruby red.
Perlage: fine and persistent.
Bouquet: fruity with scents of redcurrants and raspberries, richly accompanied by roses and crusty bread sensations.
Palate: full, harmonious flavour with a froth that conveys fullness and crispness. The aftertaste is balanced and perfectly persistent.
Excellent with delicately flavoured antipasti, cured meats, fish, white meats and vegetables. Definitely worth trying with seafood and fish risottos. Serve at 8-10°C.
