Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pale pink in color, the 'Prima Volta 2015' has a classic aromatic set that combines notes of small fruits with strong floral touches and great precision. On the palate, the delicate fruity hints are immediately evident, as well as the overall impact that manages to combine the creaminess of the perlage together with citrus and mineral notes of great incisiveness, which make the sip fresh, thirst-quenching and constantly evolving.
Vineyard Notes
Cantina della Volta is the rebirth of a winery founded in 1920 by the Bellei family. The fourth generation of the Bellei, Christian, is the catalyst that began Cantina della Volta anew. The winery is part of a 32ha site with 9ha of vine. Christian has begun moving the winery to organic certification-all wines are farmed sustainably and the Il Mattaglio wines are certified organic as of 2017. Christian believes very heavily in the Metodo Classico (Traditional Method) and all of his wines are bottle-fermented. The wines of Cantina della Volta are truly world-class. They are regarded by many to be among the finest sparkling wines produced in Italy and are found in the very best restaurants in the world.
Production Notes
The grapes are softly pressed and only the free run must, the second 30% which is the best quality, is fermented. Following the Metodo Classico, the first fermentation is in stainless steel tank followed by the second fermentation in the bottle. Following disgorgement, the wine is topped off without the addition of sugar.
