VSQ (Vino Spumante di Qualità)
da Metodo Classico millesimato
Golden, clear and brilliant with a very fine and persistent perlage, it has an intense and enveloping bouquet that recalls almonds, hazelnuts and a hint of bread crust, with an intense floral note on the finish. The enveloping and dry flavour, fruity and with lovely structure, leaves a citrusy touch on the finish, with fresh and clean acidity.
- grape varietalsChardonnay (50%) and Pinot Nero (50%), spurred cordon pruning system, harvested in August, beginning of September
- vinificationClassical Method: the production system is a long-term process, as it strictly follows all the canons of classical spumante production, with 36 months bottle fermentation and shaking by hand on pupitres for 40-45 days; the bottle then rests one month in the neck-down position before disgorgement and then 3 more months before release to the market

- anecdotesThe tradition of spumante in Umbria began only in the early 1980’s but careful selection of soils and microclimates aimed at finding the best conditions for producing grapes with good acidity has rewarded us with a product that rivals the more renowned spumante areas. The character endowed by the long, careful vinification makes it a highly sought-after spumante for aficionados.
