Altemasi Trento Spumante 75cl
Fine and delicate Trento DOC, traditional method, sparkler produced solely from Chardonnay and aged 15 months on lees. Trento was the first Italian region to be given DOC status for metodo classico wines. Grapes are sourced from high altitude vineyards in this mountainous region of northern Italy.
The Chardonnay vines grow in vineyards in the Valle dei Laghi and hills around Trento, with yields of 80-90 hl per hectare. The grapes are hand-picked into small crates and undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel. Secondary fermentation takes place in bottle the following spring - followed by ageing on the lees for at least 15 months in cool, underground cellars.
Appealing aromas of citrus and ripe peach, with notes of brioche. On the palate fresh apple and lightly floral characters, ripe and textural, balanced by crisp citrus acidity, and a persistent mousse.
Enjoyable with or without food - a perfect aperitif or celebration wine.
