888 Millesimato

888 Millesimato Redentore is the maximum expression of naturality: biologic, vegan and without sulfites. The number 888 has a double meaning. In the Western numerology symbolizes the “Redentore”, the Redeemer, whereas in the Oriental one means triple luck. It presents a fine perlage and delicate fruity scents, that marry deliciously with its light, creamy and elegant taste. It is ideal in any occasion to toast and with fish dishes. We suggest to serve at 5-6°C.

Grapes

100% Glera

Production Area

In the Prosecco area, north-east of Italy

Soil

It has the ideal structure for vine growing, with a high percentage of clay. It is particularly rich in tufa, which characterizes the wine.

Climate

Mild. There are wide changes of temperature between day and night ideal for the preservation of the aroma and the acidity of the grapes.

Density of the plantation and training system

3.000-5.000 vines per hectare trained with "cappuccina" system.

Vineyard management

To obtain a perfect ripening of the grapes, beyond the normal vineyard management, we carry out summer pruning and careful leaf thinning. Furthermore, the yield is kept very low in order to produce grapes rich in body and aroma.

Harvest

Beginning of September.

Vinification

Destemming and crashing of the grapes, cold skin contact, soft pressing, cool static clarification and fermentation exclusively with wild yeasts in stainless steel vats at 18°C. Then the wine matures on its noble lees in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The lees are frequently mixed (battonage) in order to increase the thickness and the smoothness of the wine.

Second fermentation

The second fermentation is carried out with the "Italian method" in pressured tanks.

Alcohol

11% by vol.

Intense straw yellow colour. At the nose it has an elegant fruity aroma, with nuts and toasted almonds hints. At the taste it is elegant and fresh, with an excellent balanced minerality.

Serving temperature

5-6°C.

Food matching

Ideal with elegant starters, soups, vegetables risotto and grilled fish.

Storage

In a cool and dark place; it gives its best characteristics when it is served still young.
