Spumante DOC Sicilia

Its delicate perlage, the elegance of its perfumes, its freshness and appreciated mineral taste make a versatile spumante wine with classical method: ideal both for aperitif and to enhance the dishes.

Vinification

Carefully selected grapes are hand-picked when company technicians identify the right moment to obtain the basis for spumante wines, which need a high level in total acidity and a low level of sugar. Collected grapes, following wine-making process in white, are softly pressed and only the first pressing is devoted to this product, with consequent yields of 50-60%. Fermentation lasts 3 weeks at controlled temperature. The wine is refined in stainless steel pools up to the following spring, when it is put in bottle with yeasts and activators to start the second fermentation.

Refinement

It rests 20 months on yeasts and fine lees; then remuage, disgorgement, levelling and packing. Next, it is left to refine in bottle for at least 4 more months before it is gets to the market.
