Cuvée89Vino spumante metodo ancestrale
The Cuvée89 wine is a blend of white grape varieties of the Valle d’Aosta, harvested at the same time at the beginning of September. The whole cluster is pressed, the must is decanted at cold temperatures for 12/18 hours then it is filtered to remove sediment and seeds.
Natural fermentation in steel tanks at low temperatures. The wine rests on the lees until december when a part of the must that was harvested and frozen, is added and heated to 25 C. so that it can be bottled with a crow cap.
The second fermentation occurs naturally in the bottle during the following 30/40 days.
This fermentation creates a pressure of 2,5/2,8 atm and the natural sediment that is rich in proteins and antioxidants is left in the bottle.
Delicately turn the bottle upside down before serving at a well chilled temperature.
