Tasting Notes

Vineyards: For this wine, Masottina selects only the best Glera grapes from hillside vineyards, with a sunny exposure. Soil is primarily morianic/clay which, combined with a unique microclimate, helps produce a sparkling wine that is both intense and characteristic. Guyot trellising is used, and plantings are between 3500 and 4000 vines per hectare.

Production: The first alcoholic fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The secondary fermentation, to create the bubbles, took about one month via the Charmat (Tank) method.
It is fully sparkling (spumante), at ~5-bar pressure, bottled “Brut”, meaning that there is about 10 gr/l residual sugar – just barely noticeable, but an important element in the wine’s popularity.
Alcohol is 11.0%/vol., and total acidity is 5.7g/l.

Our tasting note: Bright, pale straw yellow in colour with greenish highlights. Fully sparkling with a fine and persistent perlage. Intense, fruity aromas of apple and citrus (lemon and grapefruit) with notes of acacia blossoms. Crisp and dry, with a full and lively, fresh finish.

Pairings: An excellent aperitif wine, it will also match a wide array to foods – particularly hors d’oeuvres -- and makes a great match for sushi.
