Melgra' - Rose' Brut Spumante Extra Dry - Sparkling Wine - 2016
My name is Melgrà, because my colour is very similar to the pomegranate, “melgrà” in our dialect. My bubbles are a blend of sunshine and refinement.
I perfectly match with: cold cuts, meat and fis appetizers, fish soup, sushi, tagliolini with shrimps, oysters, raw shellfish.
My grapes are 100% Montepulciano, a great vine that with its aromatic kindness is very suitable to be converted into sparkling wine.
My production is based on scrupulous attention in the care and selection of the best grapes, picked at a degree of early ripening, then brought to the cellar in small crates to protect the integrity of the grapes. The conversion into sparkling wine according to the Charmat or Martinotti method enhances my aromatic and fruity notes with a fresh and harmonious result.
I have a delicate fragrance that fascinates with notes of strawberries and wild berries, while in the mouth I offer a precise flavor.
My winemaking process.
Fermentation: classic Rosé winemaking technique in contact with the skins for 2 hours in the absence of oxygen. The fermentation has a duration of 12-13 days at a temperature of 16°C. Refermentation/Froth capture: in autoclaves (Charmat or Martinotti method) on the lees for 150 days.
