A unique terroir “Terre della Baronia” with 9 different areas and sub areas. The portions of vineyard in the areal Munti were planted with the clonal selections of Inzolia combined with those of Milici planted with Chardonnay, the location benefis from a soil of medium texture with a good presence of limestone skeleton that enhances the dorsal acidic backbone. These are key elements to create an high-quality classic method. Moreover, thanks to the climate specific characteristics of the hills surrounding Campobello di Licata, the selected varietals reach a full maturation preserving freshness, elegance and aromatic. A "Mediterranean" expression recognised in a winemaking style as a result of agronomic and oenological choices that preserve and exhalts the territorial expression.
All our classic method sparkling wines are created following a fastidious and restrictive protocol, resulting from a 40 year experience in winemaking and 25 years of production and commercialization. Minimum 24 months on the lees. Every vintage the bases are selected inbetween the the wines coming from the various subareas dedicated to the classic method production. Extreme control of the temperatures in the second fermentation phase, and of the timing of the maturation on the lees. Manual remuage, accurate preparation of the liqueur de dosage for every dégorgement, respect of the due time for resting and maturation, minimum 6 months after disgorging.
A pale yellow colour with greenish glints. Very fine and persistent perlage. To the nose it releases hints of liquorice and wild fennel stand out clearly. Floral and candied citrus scents make for a richer bouquet. On the palate a special sinergy between the acidic base, structure and persistence. This gives to the wine a good complexity.
