|Pinot Noir grapes are hand-picked the first or second week of September, crushed in a pneumatic soft press and subsequently fermented at controlled temperature into stainless steel tanks up to 8-9% alcohol. The freshly fermented wine is kept at low temperature on its lees until February following the harvest, when it’s bottled for a secondary fermentation, to produce natural effervescence and carbonic pressure (4 years sur-lattes). 0 gr/lt dosage.|
