A great year for Pinot Nero, king of Spumanti and of these unfiltered, rosé bubbles. The perfect equilibrium between acidity and sugar content led to sapid, fresh grape must. The grapes come from southerly facing vineyards, and are the ripest ones. The Metodo Ancestrale is carried out without any extraneous sugar being added for the “presa di spuma” (= formation of bubbles); the sugar content is around 24 g/l, the valves of the pressurised tanks are closed.... and the little bubbles begin to develop. This gives greater freshness, more intense aromas and the use of sulphites is reduced to a minimum. The presence of the noble lees, also in the bottle, makes the wine mature and develop notes of bread crust. It’s a dry wine, which owes its softness to the method of production and not to the sugar content.
Tasting - Colour: intense dusky pink, veiled by its “wholeness”, with nuances that tend towards orange with ageing. The nose: typical forest fruits emerge immediately, especially wild strawberry and raspberry, along with hints of cherry and brioche. In the mouth: you taste the notes of mixed red fruits perceived by the nose, and the vivacity of the larger bubbles is very pleasant.
Wine and Food Pairing – A Rosé de Noirs 100% can be drunk like any other sparkling wine, and it can accompany appetizers of cold cuts, canapés and bruschetta, or flavoursome fish dishes with tomato (squid or octopus “in guazzetto”, soups), as well as fried foods, in particular fish.
