Blancdeblancs

Metodo Classico

Blancdeblancs

The name literally means white wine from white grapes. It is a single-variety by definition, as the only white grape variety presents in our winery is Chardonnay. It is a vertical wine, characterized by a great freshness and sapidity, in a version without added dosage, in order to better express the concept of terroir, that is the sum of the characteristics and biodiversity present in the so-called “white lands” of the Langa Astigiana.

The method

Winemaking

The harvest is entirely manual. The whole bunches pressing is soft with a traditional Coquard press, with fractionation of the various pressing phases and low grape/must yields. The alcoholic fermentation of the must takes place partly in steel tanks and partly in used French oak barrels with subsequent aging on its lees. The wine is then bottled for the second fermentation, without clarification or filtration.

The choice of packaging

A package for everyone

In addition to give a unique packaging to every single product, our company has decided to create specific boxes for each type of bottle. The box, made by a paper industry, will evoke the shades of the various labels, with the aim of helping customers during the exhibitions and above all in retail.
