Wine base

The still base wine is obtained from the harvest of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc or Pinot Meunier grapes. Once bottled, sugars and yeast are added.

The in-bottle ageing and the action of the yeast lead to second fermentation. This is the reason why metodo classico sparkling wines are referred to as “wine with in-bottle refermentation”. The first fermentation occurs beforehand, during the process of transforming the grapes into wine. This is the first step in the making of Trentodoc, doc italian wine.
