Alta langa DOCG Sivà

Tasting: A persistent perlage and unique sparklingness : this is our Alta Langa Sivà DOCG Metodo Classico Brut . Its bouquet is a perfect combination between the typical scent of bread crust, due to yeasts, and the scent of white flowers, such as jasmine, given by  the chardonnay grape

  The Vineyard 

During the summer, when we go back home after a day working in this vineyard, we are covered by the dark and reddish dust of this soil. We are in the high Langhe, at 500m, on the slope that descends from Albaretto Torre towards Sinio. The geological origin of this soil is the Cassinasco Formation (former Lequio Formation) formed about 12 million years ago in the then Ligurian-Piedmontese Ocean. The soil is reddish in color, with a significant presence of planar sandstones, a good structure with a sub-alkaline pH. However, it tends to compact and deconstruct very easily , therefore, a very  careful soil management is required so as to obtain the highest quality chardonnay for our Alta Langa Sivà.
