Alta Langa extra brut DOCG, 750 ml.
Alta Langa extra brut "metode classico" from Ettore Germano. A top producer form Serralunga in the Piemento region. The delicous bubbles er made of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The grapes are plucked by hand then places in small plastic baskets and taken to the vineyard, where they're squeezed in the whole cluster, then the skin is removed from the must. Fermentation of both grapes are done at a low temperature. Part of the wine is refined in medium sized non-burnt barrels while the rest stays in steel tanks. The wine matures for 30 months before "emptying" and dosing find place.
The wine has an intens straw-coloured colour with delicate and persistent bubbles.
In the nose the wine has notes of breadcrust, dried fruits (apricots, peach) with underlying flowernotes. In the mouth the wine is full and rich with a good acidity and creamy feeling given by the bubbles, that help with cleansing the mouth and giving a good aromtic feeling.
Sparkling wine is always a way of celebrating with friends and family, but it can also be a wine that goes well with fish, shellfish and different dishes.
