Parusso

Brut Rosé Metodo Classico

    • Description :

      In a quest to rediscover and revive old traditions, Parusso's "Metodo Classico" is a Nebbiolo-based sparkling wine that represents a part of the centuries-old tradition of Italian and Piemontese sparkling wine production. The grapes are harvested in mid-September and then left to rest in the cellar for a few days at controlled temperature and humidity. The must does not spend time with the skins and only the best part of the must is used - mosto fiore. Fermentation occurs with the presence of indigenous yeasts. The tirage occurs adding the yeast in order to obtain the "prise de mousse" in bottle. It ages in cellar, on its lees, for 36 months before disgorgement.
