To create this sparkling wine have been  used  grapes:  Chardonnay  80%, Pinot nero 10% and Pinot bianco 10% The wine is made by a soft pressing and after the decanting phase are added yeasts. The fermentation in stainless steel has a duration of 20 days. The long aging of 7 months takes place partly in steel and partly in barriques. In the following month of May it will be bottled and sealed with crown caps for the fermentation and left to age in the bottle on the lees for 24 - 36 months. The last phase of the process involves the degorgement of wine that involves removing the cap on which are deposited sediments.
