Sparkling wines

Verde Piona

Verde Piona dates back to the 1970s after various experimentations of Albino Piona in person.

Sparkling white wine obtained from a second fermentation on the lees without disgorging.

Characteristics

A shiny straw yellow color with fine and persistent perlage.

To the nose, it is intense and fragrant, with hints of bread crust and notes of yeast; it is fine and elegant.

In the mouth, it is strong and harmonious, sapid and lively, with a slightly bitter and dry background.

Vinification

A sparkling white wine achieved through refermentation on its lees in the bottle, without disgorgement. It originates from the refermentation in the bottle of a base wine made through white wine vinification of these two indigenous grapes varieties. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle in spring and confers its typical perlage to this wine. As it naturally settles on its lees, “sur lies”, it achieves complexity and an incredible long-living capacity. It is the result of family Piona's long experience.

Pairings

Outstanding as an aperitif or combined with "antipasti di terra" starters, such as charcuterie and cheese. Ideal with shellfish, clams and fish-based dishes.   

Serving Temperature
6 – 8°C
Alcohol Content
11,5 - 12% Vol.
Special Features

“Clear” version: keep the bottle in a vertical position not to suspend lees on the bottom. Slowly pour the wine in a jug at the moment of consumption and retain the lees on the bottom.
“Cloudy” version: gently shake the bottle before consumption in order to suspend lees and enjoy the wine aroma at best.

Its exciting fragrance, arising from refermentation in the bottle, will take you to a past time, which is still alive and well present among all the modern sparkling wine production methods – a method which was sagely implemented by its creator, Albino Piona.
