Pearl wine 0.75 lt
Grown on the hills of the “Astoria” Estate, at approx. 150 m. above sea level.

The grapes are harvested by hand in September, when they have the best chemical/organoleptic properties, and are lightly crushed. The must then undergoes static decantation. Primary fermentation takes place inside steel vats at 18/19°C with the help of selected autochthonous yeasts. The thus obtained wine remains in contact with the grape skins for a couple of weeks, then it is cleared and run into tanks, where it becomes sparkling. Second fermentation with the help of selected yeasts occurs at 16/18°C and lasts approx. 10/15 days. The final fining phase lasts 15/20 days, during which the wine remains in contact with the yeasts. The bottled wine undergoes further aging for a couple of months.
Perlage: fine and continuous.
Colour: light straw yellow.
