Alasia Rosé Brut, Alta Langa DOCG
Elegant pink sparkler from the foothills of Piemonte. Part of the small but growing traditional Alta Langa appellation – a delightful metodo classico rosé produced solely from Pinot Noir, with extended time on lees.
Pale salmon pink with a fine mouse, aromas of ripe red berries, and gentle brioche notes. Layers of tasty strawberry, raspberry and bready characters give a broad and generous palate with a long, and persistent finish.
After hand harvesting the fruit is 5° C. Whole bunches are gently pressed using a pneumatic press. After settling for 48 hours the juice is racked and fermented at 16° C. It rests on its lees for 2 months before secondary fermentation in bottle at 12° C. Then the wine spends a further 3½ years on its lees, in a cool underground cellar, to add richness and complexity to the wine.
