Vinification/Maturation The harvest for this sparkling wine begins in early August, when the grape has high acidity and low sugar. The grapes are harvested by varietal and kept separated in order to optimize the structure and complexity of the lots. After inoculation with selected yeasts, fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks. In november, the oenology team prepares the base wine highlighting the individuality of the grapes character.
