100% Grillo based wine. It grows in Acate, in the province of Ragusa. This variety prefers typically sandy terrain and a lot of sunlight.
The grapes are picked and selected during the second and third week of August. After soft pressing, the must is keep for 24 hours at 5°C to make it clear, and then fermented at 16-18°C for 7-10 days (base wine). To make it frizzy, fresh must is added to the base wine in order to start the natural fermentation process in autoclave at a temperature of 13-14°C for 8-10 days in order to allow the yeast to produce soft and elegant bubbles (Petit Charmat). Then when the wine has around 16g/L of residual sugar, is quickly chilled to stop the fermentation in order to keep a perfect balance between sweetness and freshness.
