- Other Information:Objective: Making an excellent spumante following the traditional production process (Classic Method) that starts with a great base (a great must) and develops into a high-quality wine.
Grapes: The varieties of the grapes are not disclosed by Andi Estate. The grapes, however, are sourced from three different vineyards that meet the Andi’s requirements.
Vinification: this is what makes Spumante 2017 stand out from the crowd. The first fermentation of the grape takes place in the bottles. After that, in the winter, the wine is partially disgorged, but a part of the noble sediment is left in the wine to allow for a second fermentation on its yeasts for another 30 months at least. At the end of this process, there is a second degorgement or, if requested, the bottle is left in the upside down vertical (sur pointe) position to be degorged by the customer.
The relation between Man and Nature is the basis of the research from which we commit ourselves to intervening on the land undertaking customs, new techniques and the research of an appropriate ethical dimension in keeping with a harmonic and balanced project.
