Rizzi

Alta Langa Pas Dosè

COMPOSITION OF THE CUVÉE: 85% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot noir

PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE: Harvest: Middle-end of August (with slight variations depending on the weather).
Pressing: immediately after the handpicking, the grapes are gently pressed.
Fermentation: a controlled temperature with selected yeasts in stainless steel tank. No Malolactic.
Ageing: in steel tank with repeated batonnages for around 7/8 months, before the bottling in the spring for the second fermentation in bottle.
Refining in bottles: minimum 48 months.

TASTING NOTES: It has a lively, intense and pale mousse and a particularly fine, continuous and persistent perlage. Straw yellow in color, tending towards brilliant gold, the bouquet is intense and ample yet extremely elegant, well-knit and persistent, with nuances of honey, apples, chamomile, aniseed and Mediterranean herbs. Full-flavored, with considerable structure but at the same time notable elegance, it is very persistent on the palate.
