Pinot Nero Rosè Brut It is the sparkling wine suitable both as an aperitif and to accompany the meal. Produced exclusively from Pinot Noir from vineyards with 15 years, the grapes are harvested manually at the end of August and are vinified according to the Martinotti Method (metodo Charmat): fermentation takes place in steel at controlled temperature and then re-fermented in an autoclave, on their own yeasts, per 2 months. Differs from "brother", vinified in white, for the shortest refermentation period and from the moment of pressing: this is more intense and aims to "extract" color and aromas from the grapes in order to obtain the famous rosé color. In the glass it has a beautiful pale pink color and the nose expresses floral aromas of rose and fruity hints of strawberries and cherries. On the palate it is fresh, with delicate non-aggressive perlage, from the finish it is soft and delicate. Excellent undemanding sparkling wine that well represents the Rocca de’ Giorgi and Oltrepò Pavese, historic area for the production of Italian "bubbles".
