The well-known winery from Abruzzo has received an excellent award for one of its wines.
The well-known winery from Abruzzo, Codice Citra, has been awarded at the international competition dedicated to champagne and sparkling wines, Glass of Bubbly: Fenaroli Vino Spumante Rosé Brut Millesimato 36 Mesi has received the silver medal.
Fenaroli Vino Spumante Rosè Brut is made from grapes that are gently pressed and vinified in steel vats at around 15°C. At the end of fermentation, maturation continues on the yeasts. Refermentation and maturation on the lees: In the spring following the harvest, the base wine is re-fermented in the bottle at a temperature of 12°C for approximately 30 days. Once the second fermentation is complete, the bottles are left to mature on the lees, lying on their sides, for at least 36 months. The wine is clarified by “putting on the tip” after a laborious “remuage”, at the end of which disgorgement and dosage are carried out.
This wine has a pale pink colour with slight orange reflections, a fine and persistent perlage, and an intense and persistent bouquet, with notes of red fruits, such as cherries and morello cherries, and floral notes. There are also fragrant hints of yeast and pâtisseries. The palate is dry and fragrant, very well balanced. Overall, it is a harmonious wine, full and persistent.
