Piemonte DOC Pinot Nero extra brut

"Molinera"
Winemaking Philosophy

The Pinot Noir vineyards reserved for this selection are situated in the Monferrato district, south of the River Tanaro at altitudes between 200 and 300 metres above sea level. The soils are sandy marly in the north, while further south we find silty marly soils of much older origin.
After soft pressing, the free run must is kept at a low temperature until the prise de mousse, which takes place in pressurised tanks at a controlled temperature of about 15 °C. The product spends at least 18 months on yeasts. This gives us an elegant sparkling wine, with a soft scent of crusty bread, which reveals the harmonious structure and makes it ideal for pairing with numerous dishes.
