VARIETY: 1934 Brut Rosé Villa Giada is a blend of two traditional grape varieties from our region – this blend reflects the diversity and at the same time the complementarity of the two varieties.
VINEYARD: Well-exposed soil consisting of calcareous marl of marine sedimentary origin. Manual harvesting – several days earlier than the traditional harvesting period in order to preserve the wine’s characteristics of freshness and minerality – takes place in mid/late August depending on the year.
VINIFICATION AND AGEING: A few hours of maceration in contact with the skins and a gentle pressing give the must a light and pleasant rosy note together with good tannin. Part of the must is fermented in barrels and remains on the lees for a few months before being blended with the other part, which is fermented for a minimum of 12 months in steel tanks under controlled pressure. This procedure is called “Martinotti” (a sort of long Charmat), named after the Asti inventor who first experimented with it in 1895.
