Luigi Calatroni in 1964 signs a document that changes his life, allowing him to become owner of the Pinot Noir vineyards that he had cultivated as a sharecropper for four generations. Today Luigi’s grandchildren, Cristian and Stefano, manage the family business, located in the Valle Versa dell’Oltrepò Pavese, which produces sparkling wines based on Pinot Noir, with particular attention to freshness, ease of drinking and elegance. The production also includes two Riservas, the Poggio dei Duca and the Riserva della Famiglia, both aged on the lees for several years.
Soft pressing (pressure: 1 bar). Fermentation at 16 °C for 3 weeks. Draft in May following the
harvest. Aging in the bottle for about 9-12 months. After disgorgement, it ages for another 3 months in the bottle.
Straw yellow in color with golden reflections. Fine and persistent perlage. Fruity, with a clear memory
of freshly picked rennet apple. Round and enveloping, it boasts great freshness and good persistence.
Excellent as an aperitif, it gives its best with finger food and sushi.
