Grapes: 80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir
Vinification and maturation: The whole clusters, all from the same vintage year, are pressed very gently, and only the “free-run” must is utilised. When the initial fermentation is complete, a liqueur e tirage is added, and the wine is bottled in the classic dark-green champagne-style bottles. For the tirage, the bottles of Equipe5 are stacked horizontally in the subterranean cellars of Borgo Rocca Sveva, where the wine undergoes a slow secondary fermentation. After a maturation of over 36 months, the bottles are riddled in the traditional fashion. Finally, the bottles are disgorged and the liqueur d’expedition is added: Equipe5 is now ready to be savoured.
Appearance: Luminous straw yellow, with a slender bead of pin-point bubbles.
Bouquet: Delicious impressions of fresh pastry, with a delicate hint of crisp fruit.
Palate: Smooth, creamy, and fragrant.
Alcohol: 12% Vol.
Enjoy at: 6/8°C.
