Classification

Nicolino Sparkling Wine.

Origin

The vineyards are located in the municipality of Controguerra, at approximately 280 metres a.s.l.

Composition of subsoil

Medium-textured soil, tending to clayey.

Grape

Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, Passerina, Garganega and Riesling.

Characteristics of plant equipment

Vineyards are trained partly with a pergola trellis system with 1,100 stocks per hectare and partly with a row planting system, with 2,200 stocks per hectare.

Times of harvest and wine-making

Grapes are generally harvested from late August until the first decade of September, based on the climate and the specific variety of grape; for example, the riesling variety is the first to be harvested among the types of grape that make the Nicolino wine. Produced in small sealed tanks (autoclavi) it undergoes a slow fermentation process and is looked after with the same care that is normally reserved to the best quality sparkling wines. For the elegance of its character, the Nicolino is closer to "cremant - classic" wines rather than to the generality of sparkling wines.
