The white grapes, rigorously handpicked, are softtly pressed to keep the aromatic characteristics unchanged. Once
the pressing phase is over, the must begins its fermentation with selected yeasts which will lead it to become dry
wine, without any sugar residue. A small part of it will instead be preserved in unfermented must. When spring
arrives, we proceed to bottle, assembling the finished wine with the must: that will bring the sugars necessary to
make the second fermentation. After the second fermentation, the sparkling wine will remain on the lees for 18
months before being disgorged and put on the market.
Trebbiano Modenese grapes, autochthonous grape variety, are extremely suitable for sparkling wine, given the strong acidity still present at the time of maturation. The vineyards Soffio di Venere comes from are located on the first hill of Castelvetro and Vignola. These vines have an average age of 20 years and are exposed to south, planted with a girapoggio technique, in order to obtain greater ventilation within the vineyard which gives the grapes better health and allows reducing plant health interventions on the ground. It is important to underline that this type of accommodation requires a greater working effort. The soil is mainly of medium clayey-silty mixture, although some bands of the grape fall on a sandy soil which gives the grapes a greater freshness. These two types of soil have different characteristics that get on really well, giving birth to a magical combination.
