Attentive to the management of fermentation temperatures, decanting and oxygenation, the fermentation takes place in steel and at the end of this no filtrations are carried out.
The aging in steel continues until the following spring; moment in which the refrigerated must coming from the same grapes of the same vineyard and of the same vintage is added to trigger the process of second fermentation. The bottles are stationed in a horizontal position for 24 months, at the end of which, after a manual remuage, an ancient procedure which consists in progressively rotating the bottle until it reaches the vertical position, the bottles are disgorged and filled with the same wine, zero dosage.
Before being ready to drink, the bottles of our Spumante Metotodo Clessico Brut Millesimato are aged for a further six months in order to recreate a wonderful balance.
