Metodo Classico Nature
AREA OF PRODUCTION
The vineyards are located on the edge of the municipality of Osimo, facing south‐east, at about 150 meters above sea level. The soils go back to marine pleiocene‐pleistocene formations and are characterised by deep and particularly calcareous soils.
YIELD PER HECTARE
The yields are kept low by short pruning and focused thinning; they vary from 8 to 9 tons per hectare according to the season.
The grapes are picked by hand and collected in boxes. Normally it takes place at the beginning of September. Depending on the climatic conditions, every vintage we choose the grape which are showing the right balance between the sugar and acidity level: sugars must not be above 15°‐16° BABO, whereas the acidity must be around 8-9 gr/lt.
The destemmed berries undergo a short cold maceration before moving to the wine making process and fining in stainless steel tanks.
The ageing period in the bottle for 30 months gives the characteristic yeasty aroma from the lees contact and their autolysis. After the disgorgement the wine rests for further 6 months before the release. Residual sugar is 2,1 gr/lt.
