Appellation: Vino Frizzante
Tasting Notes: Floral notes on the nose (rose + acacia flowers) along with hints of almond and green apple. On the palate it is soft with creamy bubbles, a moderate acidity and notes of citrus blossom, lemon rind and ginger.
Food Pairing: Super crushable! Definitely can be consumed on its own. Also pairs well with light hors d’oeuvres, crudités, seafood and creamy cheeses.
Vineyard: The ViV’s indigenous varietals Arneis and Nebbiolo are grown around the famous regions of Roero and Langhe. Biodynamically farmed.
Harvest: Is done by hand at the end of August.
Vinification: Very light press to extract the indigenous yeasts present on the grapes and subsequent fermentation in steel tanks. After the first spontaneous fermentation the wine rests on its lees till the first lunar cycle is complete. In October the wine is bottled by hand with a crown cap so that the wine can naturally ferment a second time in bottle and, thanks to the sugars and yeast present in the bottle, the “metodo ancestrale” cycle comes to an end without adding or subtracting anything before bottling. The wine is not filtered nor clarified and has no addition of sulfites before bottling. Each bottle is unique and follows its own evolution.
