Borgo Casignano, Monti del Chianti
Trebbiano e Malvasia
Casignano Brut sparkling wine is obtained in cuvée close, utilizing the Charmat method. The basic raw materials are the classic white grapes cultivated in the Tuscan hills: Trebbiano and Malvasia. The grapes, harvested in cases during the cool hours of the day, are vinified with slight maceration. The following year the wine obtained spends 6 weeks in autoclaves for further fermentation. After 15 days of cooling below 0°, it is bottled and laid to mature in the cellar for 6 months before sale.
Appearance: Pale yellow, dense foam with a delicate and persistent perlage.
Bouquet: Intense fruity scent that calls to mind yellow apples, peaches, exotic fruit, and flowers including Wisteria and Acacia.
Taste: Nicely full and long on the palate in complete harmony with the bouquet.
