What do Valentino Rossi and Roger Federer have in common? It’s easy to say: they are both seasoned champions still able to compete successfully against younger players. Our Riserva della Famiglia is a bit like them: a Metodo Classico sparkling wine that aims at proving how the Oltrepò Pavese Pinot Noir grown in the best vineyards can still be a champion after ageing for a very long time on the lees.
To get the best acidity, we select the best grapes from the highest vineyards of our estate for the base wine. We get the natural rosé colour simply through direct pressing. After the first fermentation, the wine is bottled in spring and left 90 months on the lees.
On the nose it offers a complex bouquet with notes of baked pastry, spices and balsamic herbs. On palate it will surprise you with its still vibrant acidity and nice salty finish. Pair it with meat and even furred game dishes, or try it in a challenging contrast with oysters and raw fish. Best enjoyed at 6-8 °C.DOWNLOAD THIS CONTENT (PDF)
