Spumante Alta Langa Metodo Classico Tradizionale Sordo
Awards and honors
This fabulous sparkling wine is a blend composed by 30% Pinot Noir and 70% Chardonnay, cultivated in Langhe. The vineyards have a south, south-west exposition and are located 350 meters above the sea level. This special position allows the plants to benefit from the sun rays the whole day. The soils here are mainly composed by sands, clay and limestone. The plants, that 10 years old, are trained on espaliers with the traditional Guyot method. 4500 stumps per hectare produce 55 quintals per hectare. The wine making considers a first fermentation in steel containers at a controlled temperature. The maturation is managed both in steel and in wood containers. The aging on lees lasts for 36 months.
