Sparkling dry white wine
Made from early Chardonnay grapes, harvested at the end of August in order to preserve the freshness and aromatic intensity of the wine.
The wine-making technique is very gentle, as it is aimed at producing a particularly clean must. Primary fermentation takes place in small stainless steel tanks, allowing the wine-making process to be carried out at quite low temperatures. This specific technique gives a very fresh and delicate wine, ideal for the subsequent production of quality sparkling wine.
To this end, after primary fermentation there is a brief pause in the process to facilitate the clarification of wine. Following this phase, the wine goes through second fermentation and is then bottled, becoming available on the market as early as the month of January following its harvest. Aurora is a natural quality sparkling wine, light straw-yellow in color with greenish hints, with a fine and quite persistent perlage. The scent is fresh and fragrant, lightly fruity with a hint of apple. The taste is slightly sour and dry, but also harmonious and pleasant.
Trebbiano Rubicone IGP
Made from Trebbiano grapes with a small addition of Malvasia di Candia grapes. These two grapes together make for a fresh and enjoyable wine, pleasantly harmonious and ideal for daily consumption. Canestrino is a finely fresh and pleasantly mineral white wine.
Albana Romagna DOCG
Sweet white wine
A traditional white wine from Romagna, legend has it that the daughter of Emperor Theodosius I, Galla Placidia, loved this wine for its fruity scent and delicate, intense taste. During the harvest, at the end of October, the grape pickers personally select the riper grapes, to produce a high quality wine. The Albana di Romagna is filtered before the end of its fermentation, in order to preserve a high sugar concentration and prevent the loss of the tropical fruit scent that is typical of these grapes. The wine is then refined with the bâtonnage technique and left aging in wooden barrels. Its aromatic bouquet is intense and persistent, with fruity scents gently blending with honey and wildflower scents. This wine is ideal for the end of the meal and can be paired with fruit and desserts, especially pastries.
