Zero Riserva Pas Dosé Rosé de Saignée represents the style of Enrico Serafino Alta Langa. The choice to avoid any liqueur d’expédition combined with the late disgorgement, allows this wine to assert its personality and uniqueness. The pure characteristics of the Pinot Noir grape variety are enhanced by the saignée vinification that characterizes the rosés with an important fruit and a more complex structure.
DOSAGE: Pas dosé
COMPOSITION OF THE CUVÉE: 100% Pinot Nero
PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE: The altitude of the vineyards has an average of 500 meters in the authorized areas of the Alta Langa docg. The grapes are selected on the sorting table and the whole clusters are chilled before undergoing soft pressing in an inert environment. Then, in an inert environment, the skins maceration takes place for the period required by the vintage. Following the short maceration, the “Saignée” technique takes place. It consists in the extraction of the must, which is now pink in color, to be fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The wines obtained from this process remain in contact with their own yeasts and are subjected to periodic bâtonnage until the tirage and second fermentation. This process takes place in the historic underground cellars in the absence of light and at controlled temperatures for the time required by the vintage, at least 60 months. The dégorgement à la glace ends by filling the bottle with our Zero Reserve wine.
TASTING NOTES: Pale rosé with onion skin hues combined with the complex and deep aroma of red fruits such as raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and blackcurrant fading into bread crust, white fruits and linden blossom leads to a fine and persistent “perlage” and to a great freshness and long-mineral finish taste.
