High quality Spumante wine – Classic Method

Grape varieties: 80/85% Durella grapes and the rest Chardonnay (the percentages change depending on the year). The Durella grape is a traditional autochthonal vine from the Veneto region, grown between the provinces of Vicenza and Verona where the land is able to give the wine the remarkable acidity which lends itself to the production of spumante.  The Chardonnay is an international grape, cultivated in all wine growing areas of the world and renowned for its use in the production of champagne.
Zone of production: the hills North-East of Verona, in the Mount Lessini region.
Growing Technique: short Veronese tendone;  overhead trellis
Terrain: Volcanic origin
Harvest:  from the end of August to the beginning of October.  The grapes are hand-picked into trays which are left in cold store for the cooling of the grape before pressing.
Vinification Technique: Lightly pressed in temperatures of 10-12° C. The first fermentation takes place in thermo-controlled tanks with temperatures of around 15-18°. Average time of fermentation in the tanks is 20 days. The prise de mousse, formation of bubbles based upon its natural fermenting agents, takes place in April. Maturing:  in the bottle using its own yeast for at least 30 months. Remuage sûr pupitres: on final maturing, the bottles are taken from the stacks and inserted in the riddling racks neck down.  They are rotated by hand every day for about 30 days after which the dégorgement is carried out.
