Cuvée 36 Mesi Metodo Classico Pas Dosé

The naturalness of a vintage Metodo Classico sparkling wine brut and Pas Dosé, made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, selected from the best vineyards of the Alta Langa Docg area and matured on the lees for more than 3 years. Elegantly wrapped in its light green cover, Gancia Cuvée 36 Mesi Pas Dosé creates an inseparable link with the territory, the climate and the raw materials in a world of real and genuine integrity.

COMPOSITION OF THE CUVÉE: 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay

PRODUCTION METHOD: A very soft pressing takes place in the Marmonnier press, located in the historical cellars built in early 1800’s – classified today as a World Heritage site by UNESCO – where the first and best juice is vinified. Each single press and batch of juice is fermented in wood barrels and in sealed tanks, at controlled temperature, till the wines are ready for blending (cuvée). The cuvée can then be bottled and added with yeast/sugars for the second fermentation for about 40 days.
The sparkling wine can then age and mature in the Gancia cellars for at least 36 months.

TASTING NOTES: A sparkling wine with bright straw yellow tinges, with a delicate, intense aroma, with light notes of fruit, fresh yeast and bread crust. Rich and persistent bubbles, pleasantly dry taste, fresh, well balanced with pronounced acidity.
