Tenuta Laramè Fippiane Roero Arneis DOCG Metodo Classico Pas Dosé 2018
Traditional Method Sparkling Wine
In 1837, “at the price of two hundred lire,” Francesco Povero bought “a small vineyard with little land” in the Fippiane region, an area particularly suited for viticulture in Canale d’Alba, on the Roero hills. Today, in the Fippiane region, the Povero family owns the organic vineyards from the grapes of this refined and inviting Traditional Method Sparkling wine come.
After racking, the base wine rests for a few months in stainless steel tanks. It is then bottled, without the addition of sugar, but with the addition of yeasts to start the second fermentation. The elegance and complexity of Fippiane derive from the 30 months sur-lies in the bottle. Disgorgement takes place à la glacée, freezing the neck of the bottle held in a vertical position with a saline solution, then rotated 180 degrees to remove the crown cap. The bottles are topped up with the same wine. After corking, the sparkling wine rests at least 4 months before being released.
The color is a pale straw yellow and the perlage is fine and continuous. The bouquet features fragrant notes of bread crust, ripe white pulp fruit, withered white flowers, and hazelnut. The palate is fresh and harmonious with delicate sapidity and good persistence.
