TIMES OF HARVEST AND WINE-MAKING
The first fermentation process takes place in small stainless steel sealed tanks (autoclavi) at a controlled temperature. The second fermentation occurs after bottling and is a very slow process, that takes place in extremely cool caves (approximately 11-12°C), and during maturation the product rests on its dregs for 36 to 48 months. The next phase includes the traditional manual shaking of the bottles (the so-called remuage) placed on the pupitres. This operation ends with the disgorging, and after refining the sparkling wine is ready to be put on the market.
Alcohol 12.00% vol.
