NON FILTRATO | BACK TO THE PAST
A sparkling white wine made of Glera with an ancient production method: a natural and spontaneous secondary fermentation in bottle. Non Filtrato or “sur lie” or “col fondo” is a wine created to be different (https://issuu.com/igrandivini/docs/igrandivini.marzo.2017). And it is really. Its naturalness is its main characteristics. A soft pressing of the grapes, Glera in purity, and a static cold clarification make the productive process start. A two steps fermentation: the first one in steel with selected yeasts at controlled temperature for five months on noble marc; the second one in bottle, where wine complete its fermentation transforming sugar in alcohol and CO2. This wine can be distributed few months after a short resting in bottle and give its best after some years too. A pleasant turbidity, due to the deposit of yearns in the bottom, characterizes the aspect of a wine that changes and develop day by day, revealing in time an interesting organoleptic complexity. Its bouquet combines fruity perfumes with the classic aroma of crust and its taste offers a discrete and well-balanced body and a pleasant acidity.
