Gancia Alta Langa Riserva Metodo Classico Cuvée 60 Mesi Brut

Gancia Alta Langa Riserva Metodo Classico Cuvée 60 Mesi Brut

The Alta Langa region of Piemonte is comprised of the high hills of the Monferrato and Langhe. Here at altitudes of over 250 metres above sea level, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay ripen slowly maintaining the acidity required to make high quality sparkling wine. Only the best half of the juice pressed is used for this cuvée; fermentation takes place in a mixture of barrique and stainless steel tanks. The second fermentation occurs in bottle and the wine is aged on its lees for 60 months in Gancia’s cellars. Golden yellow, the mousse is soft and creamy with a fine persistence; intense floral notes, hints of vanilla and mature fruit flavours characterise the palate.
