Sparkling Wine Riserva South Tyrol Alto Adige
A.A. Sparkling Wine Brut Riserva "36"
Every bottle is unique; every mouthful a delight. The Brut Riserva 36 sparkling wine stems from a great cuvée of the French varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc. This vintage sparkling wine is produced in accordance with the elaborate traditional method, known as the “metodo classico”. The grapes for this come from a few, selected vineyards in the Meraner Land region, which when blended allow a unique, fresh and fruity aroma to unfold. However, the Brut Riserva 36 sparkling wine only becomes a genuine masterpiece in connection with its fine perlage and the pleasing notes of yeast that develop during the elaborate bottle fermentation followed by 36 months of storage on fine lees. A complex bouquet of bread crust, yeast, vanilla and ripe fruit comes together, in an elegant, light bottle, with minerality, vibrant acidity and a fine, long-lasting perlage.Buy Now
