Curiosus Fact

Grape distillate is made straight from grapes, so it is nobler and lighter than grappa. I called the cocktail “beyond the garden” because I imagined a cottage on a hill, with a big garden in front. Beyond it stretch away vineyards and orchards, their scents and flavors mingling in the glass.

Recommended Wine: Pinot Grigio Brut

Technical data

Vineyard: The grapes come from our vineyards in the town of Sona – Tenuta Monte Corno
Grape variety: Pinot Grigio 100%
Vinification: Soft pressing of carefully selected grapes, with a yield of 70% and fermentation of the must at controlled temperature.
Aging: The processing of this wine is then carried out in an autoclave using the long Charmat method for a period of four months. The slow setting of the spume at a low temperature (15-16°C) enhances the characteristics of this vine and confers a fine and persistent perlage.
Tasting notes: Straw-yellow, with greenish reflections. Very fine and elegant yet complex in its typicality, from which arise delicate floral and fruit notes of white pulp with pear, exotic fruits and slight mineral hints. Good structure and elegant and streamlined body, harmonious in its lively freshness.
Alcohol: 12,5% vol
Food matching: It is the sparkling wine for every moment of the day.
Serve: It is recommended to serve at a temperature between 6 and 8°C.
