In the Vineyard:
DMR (“Double Maturation”): an over-ripening in the plant before to the collection. It consists in cutting the fruiting cane about two weeks before the harvest itself. It is called double maturation because besides the maturation due to the increase of the concentration of sugars, a breathing of the grape’s organic acids occurs and it gives the fruit a very intense flavour, sweet and savoury. These grapes are rarely used in purity, because they are imbalanced by a chemical and organoleptic point of view. For this reason the system is not applied on the entire vineyard, but only on a portion. The collection is done once the technological maturity of the grapes is reached.
Innovative technique of vinification through maceration without sulfur dioxide. We use a exclusive sparkling method that goes directly from the must to sparkling wine (Il Colle Method). It permits to use a incredibly low percentage of sulfites before bottling.
Pale straw yellow with green hues.
Very fine. Smooth and generous foam.
Scents of fruit, which reminds to pear. Green and flowery hints. Typical aromatic scents.
Dry, smooth and slightly acidic.
Ideal as an aperitif, perfect with fish meals, especially oysters and shellfish.

IWSC 2017 – Silver Medal Outstanding
“Pale Straw colour topped by creamy and thick mousse, resilient and persistent, just like the lively stream of bubbles which make this sparkler immediately inviting and enjoyable at first sight, even before the first sniff or sip. As fresh and fragrant to the nose as it then registers on the palate. Lightly floral, gentle fresh, clean and charming flavours, with discreet elegance and much charm.
That’s just the ticket.”
