Oenologist’s Notes

The base wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts and temperature control. The assemblage is elaborated with harmonic proportions of the wines Chardonnay and Trebbiano, seeking the best balance between the two varieties. The sparkling wine is made by the Charmat method, where the frothing is carried out in special tanks (autoclaves), being daily controlled its temperature and pressure. After fermentation, the sparkling wine remains in contact with the yeasts in the autoclave for 2 months, gaining complex aromas of the yeasts, without losing the fruity character of the original varieties. A slightly higher residual sugar is left giving the product a slightly sweetened characteristic. The product is then filtered and bottled for further commercialization.
