Pinot Nero - Chardonnay - Nebbiolo
Area of origin
Monferrato. Nebbiolo grapes are cultivated in the Barolo area, between 380 – 450 metres above sea level; Pinot nero and Chardonnay are produced from ‘crus’ selected by our agronomists and oenologists, from the high hills of Asti, an area crowned as a dell’Unesco World Heritage.
Grapes are harvested at early stage to preserve the typical Nebbiolo grape vibrant acidity, and a moderate alcohol content. Grapes are manually harvested in small 5kg cases.
The second fermentation takes place slowly in bottle at a constant temperature of 13-14°C with light and humidity also controlled in the rigorous manner we reserve for our Traditional Method Cuvage. After a maturation of 36 months on its lees Cuvage de Cuvage is ready to be enjoyed.
Tenuous straw yellow in colour, this wine features an extremely fine perlage which is gently and gradually released in the glass. Its aroma features a surprising degree of minerality conferred by the limestone soils, which mingles sweetly with delicate hints of bread crust and dark spices. In virtue of its ‘pas dosé’ production process, this wine is distinctive in personality and features a notable persistence in taste.
Cuvage de Cuvage is best served with robiola di Roccaverano soft cheese as well as with rich and succulent meat based dishes.. Serve at 4-6°C
