Production

Produced from vineyards in the highest hilly areas most suited to sparkling wine production in Trentino (Cembra Valley and a number of vineyards in the parishes of Roveré della Luna, Lavis and Trento).Yields of 70 hl per hectare. Collected in small cases, vinified using the method for white wine and left to develop in stainless steel for six months before undergoing second fermentation in the bottle. Disgorged no less than 36 months from “tirage” (second fermentation).

Tasting notes

Wonderfully developed, nutty, leesy character on the nose with hints of caramel. The palate is rich, with buttery flavours, hints of croissant and a great texture, making for a very approachable sparkler.

Food match

Drink as an aperitif, or with smoked salmon and rabbit terrine.
