Spumante Brut Millesimato

The wine appears straw yellow with subtle gold highlights, and releases a long lingering bead of tiny bubbles. The aromas are appealing and intense on the nose, with ripe fruit and delicate notes of almond and hazelnut. The palate is spacious, full bodied, and multi-layered, supported by a self confident acidity. The finish is lengthy, and concludes with a tasty citrusy note.

Vineyard age
Starting in the mid-1980s, in-depth research was carried out Fèlsina’s terrains to identify the most suitable clones; shoots were then propagated and planted, and the musts micro-vinified.

Vinification

The grapes are rigorously quality – selected, then gently pressed; the must is cold-settled, racked, then fermented at a controlled temperature. In spring, a selection of the best base wines from the previous vintage is added to the new wine, together with a mixture of sugar and cultured yeasts; it is then bottled, and undergoes its secondary fermentation. After 32 months of fermentation and maturation, the wine is disgorged, then topped up with a liqueur d’expédition. After a further minimum of 3 months ageing, the wine is released.
