TRAINING SYSTEM Simple double-arched espalier with 2,500 vines per hectare.
MAXIMUM YIELD 13.5 tons per hectare.
HARVEST PERIOD Second ten days of September.
VINIFICATION After a meticulous sorting of the berries, the whole berries from certain higher hilltops with greater exposure to the sun are crushed in a pneumatic press. The must obtained with this soft pressing was racked to temperature-controlled tanks where it remained until it was transformed into sparkling wine.
PRODUCTION Once Villa Sandi’s selected yeasts have been added to the must, fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled tanks at 15-16° C. Once the desired alcohol and residual sugar levels have been obtained, fermentation is arrested by lowering the temperature. After a short aging period, the sparkling wine is ready to be bottled.
PAIRINGS An excellent aperitif wine; raw shellfish and seafood salads, fresh and creamy cow’s milk cheeses.
IDEAL SERVING TEMPERATURE 6-8° C.
