10% Vernaccia, 20% Chardonnay, 70% Pinot Nero. The grapes come from the vineyards called “Il Nicchaio”, “Poggio del Castagno” and “Vigna Sarah”
The grapes are picked in late August. Then are softly pressed with a white vinification and in April after the cuvee creation, there is the second fermentation. Then the Spumante rests from 24 to 36 months with the yeast in the bottle. During this period bottles are placed on special racks at a 45º angle, and every few days the bottles are turned with a small shake to move the spent yeast cells and sediment down toward the neck of the bottle. After disgorgement, we add the liqueur d’expedition which is a secret recipe and we finally bottle the Spumante.
