The base for this wine is made in a similar method to our still Rosé, and for our initial vintage Sangiovese was used as the base wine. The juice is left in contact with the skins for a few hours in the press to infuse colour and fruit flavours, and then pressed off into a tank and fermenting cool as we do for our whites. The natural acidity and freshness added by making a sparkling version balance the sweet fruit flavours and residual sugar of approximately 40g/L.
Harvested in pristine condition in early January the fruit was de-stemmed, crushed and then fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to help retain the fresh fruit characters and bottled soon after ensuring minimal winemaking intervention. This process allows us to produce a wine that shows pronounced expression of both the vineyard and the variety
