Milazzo Riserva V38AG a special «riserva» created to narrate our terroir and our passionate work.
Already in the 2004 was born this cuvée aimed at representing the result of the artfull fusion of some special clones of Inzolia and Chardonnay, grown purposely and selected for their potential to withstand a long time on lees, while waiting for a special anniversary like the 40 years since the first tirage. Grapes harvested in the 2004 and separately vinified. A two years maturation in the cellar, partly in stainless still vats and partly in oak barriques, then in the 2006 the assemblage with the addition of the “liqueur de tirage “ and finally the bottlling. A total of 8 year of refining on the lees in order to give life to a sparkling wine where to find the sensory profile that constitutes the hallmark of the winery’ style.
It shows a strawy yellow colour with a perlage fine and persistent . To the nose it reveals clear aromas of exotic fruits which blend in bread crust with a light note of hazelnut on the final. On the palate is soft and creamy. Its good acidity allows it to retain a good finesse.
