The white grapes, Glera and Chardonnay, come from vineyards on the plain at the foot of the hills of Farra di Soligo. The red Raboso grapes come from vineyards at Mareno di Piave. The soils of Farra di Soligo are a mixture of clay and limestone, whereas those of Mareno di Piave are stony.
Harvest: By hand, in September for the white grapes and in late October for the Raboso
The white grapes are vinified without the skins, following soft pressing; fermentation is long and slow (lasting around 15 days) at a controlled temperature of 18° C; for the Raboso grapes, vinification takes place with destemming and crushing, followed by maceration on the skins for 10-12 days; fermentation is slow, at a controlled temperature of 18° C. Subsequently the wines are racked and kept separately at low temperatures in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks, where they mature for about three months on their fine lees.
During this phase we create the cuvée between the Glera (80%), Chardonnay (15%) and Raboso (5%) wines. The wine is made sparkling using the Charmat Method, the process traditionally adopted for youthful, delicate, fruity wines.The prise de mousse through natural re-fermentation in pressurized tanks lasts some 20-25 days, while maturation (also in these autoclaves) is for 2 months.
