Fantastic quality Italian vintage sparkling wine from northern Italy. The elegant and eye-catching square sided bottle was developed by Matteo Gatti to optimise the complex flavour and texture of this wine, from 1,000 days ('Milledi') lees ageing.

Production

The Gatti family manage 120 hectares of vineyards in six localities within the DOC. Milledi is produced solely from Chardonnay. The grapes are softly pressed with a pneumatic press, and only the first pressed juice is used. The primary alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel at 16-18ºC. The grapes from each vineyard plot are vinified separately and kept apart until the spring following harvest, when after careful tasting the assemblage is decided. Secondary fermentation is in bottle, and the wine spends 36 months on its lees.

Tasting notes

Fresh and elegant with white flower and citrus notes. The palate is complex with brioche, citrus and apple fruit characters giving a lovely weight and texture. The mousse is fine and persistent.

Food match

This will pair a number of grilled fish or poultry dishes - but also try with sushi.
