Franciacorta Pas Dosé Millesimato DOCG Cascina San Pietro
This wine is made by 100% Chardonnay grapes. The soil is moraine and there is the manual grape harvest and the grapes are put in 14 kg boxes. The most beautiful grapes of the most ancient vines arrive in the cellar maximum 2 hour later for the soft pressing with a static decantation for 18-24 hours with a fermentation under temperature control with selected yeasts. Part of the must ends the fermentation in wood barrels for 8 months. During spring time the wines are assembled and it starts a light clarification and filtration of the wines with a cold maceration. The permanence on the yeasts lasts 45 months and it permits the franciacorta Extra Brut of the San Pietro farm to become a real complex wine. The sugar corresponds to 4 grams per liter.
