Maceration- 11-15 Days skin contact
Type- Orange sparkiling
Spontaneous fermentation with the indigenous yeasts on the skin, sometimes it might take up to 3 or 4 days. Racking when the residual sugar is around 30-40 gr/L. After that, fermentation continues, but much slower; when it gets around 10-15 g/L of residual sugar it stops for the whole winter. In spring the wine is bottled, and thanks to the residual sugar a second fermentation starts and consumes the residual sugar (between 0 and 1.5 gr/l at the end of the process).
Deep gold in colour with aromas of lemon, honey, grilled herbs, smoky soil and a trace of bitter nuts. Light fizzy bubbles meander thru fresh lemon tart and Mediterranean herbs. Citrus and smoky minerals linger on the zippy finish. Lovely on its own, or with a wide variety of dishes, especially spicy ones.
