It's harvest time, and as usual, we started with manual box picking of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay sparkling wine base grapes, a harvesting method that ensures the best selection and greater attention to the harvested bunch.
The typical and notoriously fine characteristics of the two grape varieties make them the best bases for producing sparkling wines and champagnes.
A black berry grape with neutral-colored flesh, Pinot Noir is used in 100% composition for the production of our Rosé sparkling wines, the classic method Anacleto il Fondatore Rosé and La Madre Terra Rosé.
Instead, it is Chardonnay, a white berry grape with a golden-yellow color and juicy, colorless pulp, that gives the unmistakable taste to our classic method Anacleto il Fondatore Brut - 100% Chardonnay - and La Madre Terra white in composition with Ortrugo.
A harvest, this year's, that has anticipated the timing in view of the climatic conditions that have characterized the year especially in the last period, but that for the quality detected in the first grapes harvested, promises excellent results in terms of quality.
