Spumante Metodo Italiano Extra Brut Ruggeri
The new rules for the production of Prosecco don’t contemplate the version Extra Brut. Nevertheless, following the tradition, Ruggeri decided not to interrupt the production of one of his most representative wines. This Extra Brut, made with 100% Glera grapes, is able to astonish for its class and freshness. After the first fermentation, it rests on its yeasts for two months, then it is introduced in autoclave. A great Charmat, created for happy hours or dinners with good friends. Its vineyards are located on the hills near the slopes of Dolomiti mountains, in the north of Treviso. The white wine making, without any contact with the peels, is set at a controlled temperature of 18°C. The foam creation is developed in the first spring after harvest, for a slow fermentation at 12° c in huge, closed containers and a further maturation on yeast for 2 months.
