Project Description

Amalia Vintage

A single-vintage premium sparkling wine, vinification under the philosophy of Champagne with delicate aromas of citrus fruit but also intense character of on-the-lees ageing with biscuit, toasty and creamy notes.

Winemaking

Early harvest of the best quality grapes during the best vintages. Whole-cluster pressing and subsequent fermentation at low temperature. The traditional method is applied with a second fermentation in the bottle under controlled conditions, where the wine remains in contact with its lees for about 2 years. After riddling and disgorgement the addition of liquer d’expedition is the final step of vinification before bottling.

Taste features

A complex sparkling wine, with a light lemon-gold color and an intense string of fine and persistent bubbles. Citrus flower aromas in combination with pronounced biscuit, brioche-like notes and a rich, refreshing flavor with balanced acidity that is followed by a long aftertaste. A premium sparkling wine that can age over time.

Ideal food combination

Shellfish, caviar, fish roe, ripe cheese.
