Maja – Spumante Metodo Classico – V.S.Q.
“In the second decade of March, the base wine is bottled with yeasts and sugars for “froth capture”. The refermentation takes place in the bottle (according to the classic method) in rooms with constant temperature (12/15 ° C). The bottles rest horizontally in piles for at least 12 months before disgorgement. At the end of aging the remuage is carried out (to conveying the deposit towards the cap) and finally the disgorgement (the last phase that allows the removal of the deposit). Being a “Brut Nature” no additional sugar is added before final capping.”
