Ciliegio in Fiore Spumante Dolce
“Ciliegio in Fiore” is a very delicate and refined wine characterized by aromaticity and crispness. This sparkling wine is produced in the hills of Siena, from vineyards with 5500 vines per hectare and a production of 100 quintals of grapes per hectare. The grapes used are Malvasia del Chianti (30%), Malvasia Aromatica (30%), Chardonnay (30%) and Trebbiano (10%).
“Ciliegio in Fiore” is a pale straw yellow wine made crystal clear by the fine and persistent perlage. Aromatically fruity with evident hints of pear and white pulp fruit, it is equally floral with hints of white petal flowers. Its fine and delicate bouquet is well supported by a right sapidity and freshness on the palate. The fine and persistent perlage gives the right balance of taste and smell and a persuasive sensation of vivacity. This sparkling wine is ideal for a toast with friends, to accompany dry cookies, desserts with cream or fruit. Classic pairing with panettone and pandoro.
Serve at a temperature of 6° C.
It has an alcohol content of 6,5%.
The grapes are harvested early in order to respect their acidity and aromaticity and, after a delicate pressing, they are put to macerate at low temperature for few hours. The must is separated from the skins by soft pressing and fermented at controlled temperature with selected aromatic yeasts. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks and then undergoes the sparkling process according to the Charmat method.
