Winemaking notes: the grapes are hand-harvested in order to select the best bunches. The Passerina grape variety, with its wide aromatic range and marked acidity, is particularly suitable for the sparkling process with the Charmat method. The sparkling process is done with the charmat method; the fermentation is done under controlled temperature.
Tasting notes: intense straw yellow color with a fine perlage. Aromas of citrus fruits and ripe yellow pulp fruits like golden apple, plum and peach. There are also flower aromas, especially white flowers like hawthorn and jasmin. In the mouth it is fresh and savory with a nice fruity end.
Food pairings: brut sparkling wine, to be served at 6-8 °c. Great for aperitivo, served very chilled, with some ascolana style olives (fried meat stuffed olives). It paires with fish dishes both fried and grilled. Talking about cheese, it paires with a short-aged parmigiano reggiano. Talking about cured meat, it pairs with lard.
Interesting facts: passerina grape probably owes its name to the small grapes and to the fact that the sparrows (passeri in italian) like to eat these grapes that are particularly tasty.
