Alto Adige is Italy's most northerly wine region. The climate is very cool and the vineyards are planted at elevations between 400 and 800 metres. As a result, this region is known for producing fresh, aromatic white wines with high acidity. The Mezza Sparkling has aromas and flavours of red apple, pear, white peach and pineapple, along with a soft mousse, persistent bubbles and a smooth acidity. Perfect for any celebration or occasion and ideal as an aperitif.
Expert Reviews & Awards
"Cheeky Italian Fizz" ~ From northern Italy’s hilly Trentino region, this is a youthful, grapy, lightly Muscat-scented wine with light yellow-green colour and a foaming mousse. It’s fresh, light and attractively fruity with a trace of sweetness leading into a clean finish. A good aperitif style."
Huon Hooke, The Real Review.
Made from a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Bianco and 10% Muller Thurgau.
The grapes were harvested and selected by hand at the beginning of September and after destemming and crushing, soft pressed to extract only the aromatic compounds. After natural clarification, fermentation was done at controlled temperature of 17 degrees Celsius for 10- 11 days. The wine was then matured on lees for 4-6 months. After the assembly of the cuvee, the wine underwent a secondary fermentation in an autoclave for 15 days until the fermentation was naturally blocked, by cooling the temperature to 5 degrees celsius to preserve the natural sugar and encourage balance and smoothness to this sparking wine. The wine was matured on the lees in autoclave for 3-5 months before cold stabilisation, filtration and bottling.
This production process (Charmat method) is used to produce Prosecco.
