The hills are composed of decarbonated soils, medium depth. This area is characterized by mild springs, warm summers and mild autumns. The vineyards are certified Biodiversity Friend.
Single espalier, double canopy systems with 3.000 vines per hectare.
Max.135 quintals of grapes.
The must with added yeast cultures selected by Villa Sandi is then put into vessels where fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 15-16°C to enhance all the harvest fragrances. Upon reaching the required alcohol and sugar content fermentation is stopped by refrigeration. After a short settling period the sparkling wine is ready for bottling.
Whole grapes are put into the pneumatic press for soft pressing and the resulting must, after a first racking, is put into controlled temperature tanks where it remains until it is used for the production of the sparkling wine.
Excellent as an aperitif. It goes well with fish marinated with delicate aromatic herbs and herb-based first courses.
Second ten days of September.
