“The experience gained over the years led me to create a Quality Sparkling Wine, my firstMetodo Classico bubbly. Fine and persistent perlage, pearly white in colour. I decided to grow it on the Mugello hills, in Tuscany, in a context of respect for the land and contemplation of nature.”
Classic Method Sparkling Wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. This red grape variety originates from Burgundy and is considered one of the most indomitable vines in the world, but with due skill it can produce wines of undisputed elegance. In Italy, the Mediterranean climate makes it difficult to manage and so, as in the case of Pinot Noir in Tuscany, attempts have often been made to compensate for the unfavourable latitude by taking advantage of areas with good temperature ranges and ventilated microclimates.

Lagrein Grand Cru Riserva
|DOC denomination||Corella - FI - Tuscany|
|Grape varieties||100% Pinot Noir|
|Winemaking||Quality sparkling wine. Re-fermentation directly in the bottle, through the introduction of sugars and selected yeasts. In this way the wine acquires the traditional pressure, resulting from the accumulation of carbon dioxide, and the characteristic bubbles. After a period of rest, which can vary from 24/36 months to even more than 120 months, the remuage phase begins: each bottle is placed on special stands, called pupitres, which hold the neck lower than the bottom. The continuous rotation of the bottle causes the residues of the fermentation yeasts to deposit on the cork. In fact, one of the last stages is disgorging (degorgement), which consists of freezing the neck of the bottle to facilitate removal of the cork and allow the deposit to escape under pressure. The very last steps are the dosage, in this case Extra Brut, with the addition of a mixture of sugars and wine to restore the part of the wine that has been expelled, and the final corking. This vinification process gives rise to the Metodo Classico.
