THE VINE’S SELECTION
The blend that gives life to our Federico II Vintage represents the perfect synthesis of the outcomes coming from the agronomic research held on the clones of Chardonnay for over forty years. This is a high definition wine with an impressive aging potential. With this idea in mind we have selected plants with diverse genetic profiles, using different cultivation methods, to obtain a correctly developed native acidity and sugar level in the grapes, in addition to well characterized flavours precursors.
The blending of the various cuvée harvested and vinified separately here becomes an “art". Like pieces they are joined together to create that mosaic of sensations typical of this wine with a long passage on the lees, lasting more than seven years. This is a very complex and delicate phase that needs an expert oenological high precision work. The maturation of the bases (partly in oak barriques and partly in stainless steel vats) must be handled with accuracy to obtain sensory profiles of great potential.
An impressive sparkling wine with an gentle straw yellow colour with greenish glints. Very fine and continous perlage with a persistent crown. To the nose is characterized by a rich and complex bouquet with clear aromas of baking, dry fruit that remind of the almonds and redolent of spice and boisé notes. To the palate it reveals a fine, elegant and persistent structure, supported by a slighty bitter and sapid backbone.
Please note: Upon shipment of wine and spirits are carried ONLY in Italy.
