Alta Langa Montelera MillesimatoD.O.C.G.
A “Millesimato” sparkling wine is rare and precious because only in exceptional years the weather finds its perfect balance, generating a unique taste and quality. The harvest is slightly anticipated to grant a fresh and vibrant taste. Grapes are gently squeezed and the fermentation is done without grape peelings.
The must, clarified by simple decantation, is fermented at a controlled temperature.
The “cuvée”, based only on selected wines of the same harvest and year (millesimo), is bottled in spring the year after.
The evolution of this sparkling wine occurs during a slow fermentation and maturation of yeast for more than 30 months. As the fermentation occurs inside each bottle the result is a long lasting wine with structured taste but at the same time with great balance and refinement.
