Muller Thurgau-Glera Vino Spumante Brut Santa Margherita
This spectacular sparkling wine of the Santa Margherita company is produced by Müller Thurgau and Glera grapes both local vines from the Veneto. The production area is the Triveneto and the cultivation areas are located on different altitudes up to 500 meters above the sea level. All the vines used, even if cultivated in different areas, are cultivated with the trellised from Trentino or with the spurred cordon. The harvested grapes picked at the half of September, depending on the different degrees of maturation, allow the must to achieve a proof of 11,5%. Both the varieties of vines used are picked to create a perfect foam, earlier compared to the normal harvest, with the aim to preserve the acidity. The vinification occurs in different steel tanks at 16-18°C and after a short stop they are blended to create softness, freshness and harmony and so the composition is put in autoclaves together with selected yeasts under temperature control. The second fermentation occurs in autoclave at 16°C to preserve all its aromatic refinement. Once got the overpressure, it follows a resting period of three months on their yeasts.
