The Gatti family manage 120 hectares of vineyards in six localities within the DOC. Matured for six years in bottle on the lees.
Immediately impressive! The wine has a beautiful pale-mid golden colour and a maelstrom of tiny bubbles. The long lees ageing gives it an aristocratic, serious and very refined quality. A nose of apples and toasty notes from yeast lees contact. The palate has more apple, with lemon, brioche and toast. A well balanced and refreshing finish. Big flavours, but also very fresh with great acidity and just perfect 'mousse'.
Try this served with a traditional dish from the region such as tench, or similar freshwater fish, cooked in cinammon, nutmeg and cloves and served with polenta. Alternatively, this wine is a great match for savoury dishes such as lasagne with salami.
