Clipa Sparkling Wine – Chardonnay
Obtained by resorting to the Traditional Method (second fermentation and maturation in the bottle)
Bright straw-yellow, with a fine and consistent perlage. Intense aromas of white flowers, secondary notes of peaches and white apricots, green apples and citrus accents. In terms of taste, this is dominated by the fruit - apples, peaches, pomelo, with a long finish, in which the floral accents of acacia and lemongrass return. Perfectly balanced acidity, in a subtle and elegant ensemble.
The grapes were harvested at night, in mid-August, having a sugar concentration of 175 g/l – 185 g/l. The Ravac grape must, obtained without pressing, was left to ferment in stainless steel tanks, at a controlled temperature, ranging between 12 and 17 Celsius degrees.
The resulting wine continued to mature on fine yeasts, with stirring, for a minimum period of three months.
To make the sparkling wine, wine fractions from 2021 (the dominant year) and 2022 were blended.
Circulation and bottling: January 2023.
The second fermentation took place at a temperature of 150C.
Disgorging (excess yeast removal from the bottle before the cork is inserted): after 9 months of maturation on yeasts, at a temperature of 10-12 0C.
