Pinot Nero - Chardonnay - Nebbiolo
Area of origin
. Nebbiolo grapes are grown in the Barolo area, between 380 and 450 meters above sea level, Pinot Nero and Chardonnay come from the ridge that extends from Acqui Terme to the Sessame area, in the Asti area. The soils that characterize our Cuvée have a strongly calcareous component, but the prospect towards the Ligurian Alps and the Tyrrhenian Sea gives a breezy microclimate that gives a distinctive feature to these varieties. Training system: Guyot • Average age of the vines: 25 years.
Grapes are harvested early in order to preserve the typical acidity and moderate alcohol content from the Nebbiolo grape. Grapes are hand picked and placed into small cases of 5kg each. The harvested grapes undergo gentle pressing as well as a brief maceration with the skins.
Secondary fermentation is carried out at constant temperatures of 13-14°C. Permanence on the lees occurs for a minimum of 24 months proceeding dégorgement.
Deep straw color with golden highlights. It has a very fine and persistent perlage which is slowly released in the glass. On the nose, you can perceive the classic notes of bread crust that come from the traditional method as well as white flowers, citrusy lime, and acacia honey. The palate is fresh, full-bodied, balanced, and complex. The fine froth is very creamy in the mouth and shows a persistent, strong personality.
This wine pairs excellent with pasta, risotto, starchy foods like potato or black bean tacos, baked fish, and fresh robiola cheese. Serve at 4-6°C
