The Cuvée dei Frati Brut from Cà dei Frati is a refreshing Italian spumante from the Turbiana (90%) and Chardonnay (10%) grape varieties.
In the glass, this sparkling wine has a fine, continuous perlage and shines in a bright golden yellow with greenish highlights. The fragrant bouquet unfolds intense aromas of hazelnuts, freshly baked biscuits - accompanied by nuances of hay and spicy tobacco. On the palate, this wine is wonderfully silky and creamy, because the Chardonnay gives this sparkling wine its soft side and thus rounds off the youthful exuberance of Turbiana (Trebbiano) perfectly.
Vinification of the Cà dei Frati Cuvée dei Frati Brut
This Italian sparkling wine is vinified according to Metodo Classico.
First, the grapes are pressed whole and fermented in a stainless steel tank (1st fermentation). Sugar and yeast are now added to this base wine, then poured into the champagne bottle and tightly closed with a crown cap (2nd fermentation). In the bottle, this sparkling wine is stored on the fine yeast for a total of 24 months and is degorged after this second fermentation process. Finally, this spumante matures for 4 months on the bottle.
