Quality sparkling wine made with the classic method Serenissima DOC, Brut.
Chardonnay and Pinot Nero; the percentages may vary slightly with the different vintages.
The area of the "Serenissima" DOC, extends into the foothills placed as an arch between the Alps at north and the Po plain in the south. The soils, depending on the hilly areas, have a volcanic or sedimentary origin; the soil coming from the sloughing of these rocks, is on average superficial, with the widespread presence of skeleton that allows an excellent drainage of rainwater. The vineyards are located in our estate of Crocetta del Montello. The summers are cool and ventilated and characterized by pronounced day-night temperature changes
Guyot with minimum 3.500 plants per hectare
On average 120 quintals of grapes
After having created the cuvée by blending the two types of wine and having added the yeast cultures selected by Villa Sandi in suitable proportions, the wine is bottled. The bottles are then stored in underground cellars where the temperature and humidity are constant. Secondary fermentation takes place here and the sparkling wine ages in contact with the lees for at least 24 months. Disgorging is carried out after this period and only after another two months of settling the sparkling wine is ready to be marketed..
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 alcoholic fermentation takes place at a temperature of 17-19°C. The wine remains in the tanks to age until the following spring.
An excellent aperitif, ideal with finger food.
