FEATURE: SPARKLING CHARMAT METHOD
The process of sparkling wine begins with the production of a base wine obtained from the classic white winemaking, mostly in steel, and with a low alcohol content – usually 9.5-10.5% alcohol.
The base wine is added with yeasts and sugars in a quantity sufficient to trigger the refermentation process – called foaming -,
Still in an autoclave, the sparkling wine is filtered to separate it from the dregs that formed during the sparkling process. It then passes into a second autoclave to be bottled and capped with the classic mushroom cap.
The sparkling wine then rests in the cellar for some time before being put on the market.
