GRAPE: SAUVIGNON BLANC

COUNTRY: ITALY

THE WINEMAKER: CASCINA ZERBETTA

Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, made in the Petillant Natural Method from 15 year old vines in Piedmonte, Northern Italy.

Refreshing, light, saline and lively mouthfeel, with aromas of tangerine, grapefruit and elderflower.

All of the grapes for this wine come from Paolo’s small estate in Piemonte. Sauvignon Blanc makes up 1 of his 4 hectares of vines. Up until the 2016 vintage all of his Sauvignon Blanc went into his ‘Quattrocento’ white, however since then he has done various experiments including a passito (called ‘Safran’) as well as this natural sparkling wine. The grapes for the base wine were harvested early in August whilst the must used to re- ferment in bottle comes from sweet late harvest grapes (the rest of which normally goes into his Passito).

The grapes were destemmed and pressed then fermented on their natural yeasts in steel tank for 2 weeks. Racked to get rid of gross lees then stayed on fine lees for 5 months. In late 2020, the wine was re-fermented in botte by using must from late harvest grapes (same vineyard, same vintage) that he had kept chilled in a fridge. No yeast or sugar addition. Unfined, unfiltered, no added sulphites. Total production = 900 bottles

Typical ‘ancestral’ method – the grapes are whole bunch pressed, and fermentation kicks off in stainless steel. The wine is bottled in October at the right level of residual sugar and finishes its fermentation in the bottle which creates its natural bubbles.
