    Great for all occasions: by the pool, at happy hour, or with a cheese plate, fish, meat, or veggies, this classic method brut rosè is sure to please even the most advanced palates.
  • Typology: Sparkling Rosè Wine
    Production area: Friuli Grave
    Grape Variety: Chardonnay, Pinot Nero, Pinot Bianco
    Harvesting: By hand
    Fermentation and refinery: The first fermentation of Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco takes place in steel, while for Pinot Noir there is a very short stop on the skins to add body and the beautiful color. All varietals are then refined for a few months on the lees before combination and bottling where the second fundamental fermentation takes place. The subsequent stop of the wine in contact with the yeasts requires a minimum duration of 24 months. The disgorgement and a small addition of liqueur d'expedition close the production cycle and the bottles, after a few months' rest in the cellar, are ready to be tasted.
    Storage Suggestion: Always keep the bottles lying down, in a cool and dark place, putting them in the fridge only for the time necessary to bring them to temperature. To serve it correctly, tilt the bottle to a 45° angle and remove the cork slowly, gently venting the gas without making a sound.

    Alcohol: 13.0%
    Temperature for Serving: Ice Cold! 4-6°C
    Tasting notes: Soft pink color with a fine and persistent perlage. On the nose the yeast notes are well pronounced, the fruit aromas are more delicate, be they red, dried, or tropical. The taste is fresh, well-structured, and harmonious.
    Serving Suggestions: Pink Brut Rosé is ideal as an aperitif but also as an accompaniment to tasty appetizers, first courses based on fish, meat, or vegetables. Excellent in combination with fish second courses. Excellent between meals. Never use it after a meal, with or without sweets!
