PUIANELLO METODO CLASSICO
Pinot 85% – Chardonnay 15%
Generally in mid-August when the grape, not perfectly ripe, retains the right acidity; the grapes are harvested strictly by hand.
Only the very first part of the must, immediately separated from the marc, is used to prepare the base of this sparkling wine, then fermented at a controlled temperature. In spring, its second fermentation takes place in the bottle. The bottles are then placed in a cool cellar where the rest phase of about 36 months takes place. Before being put on sale, the bottles are placed in pupitre and turned manually to ensure that the yeasts reach the position of the cap. Finally, the “degorgement”, also called disgorgement, is carried out, with the addition of the “liqueor de spedition”, very respectful of the wine of origin.
