Murgo Brut VSQ 2021 Sparkling Wine Cl 75
The high acidity, low concentration in color and many other elements that come from the terroir make these grapes very suitable for the production of sparkling wines made with the Metodo Classico. The result is a wine with great personality and structure that boasts the distinction of being the first sparkling wine made from Nerello Mascalese grapes.
Grapes are harvested before fully ripe and gently pressed to minimize color extraction from the skins. After decanting, the obtained must ferments in stainless steel at a controlled temperature (16°C). After fermentation is complete, the wine matures in stainless steel tanks for about eight months before frothing, which is usually done from the early spring following the harvest. After the second fermentation in the bottle, the wine matures on the lees for a minimum of twenty-four months. Dosing is done with wine from the same batch and a small amount of sugar to balance the acidity of the wine. Since the first production dating back to the 1989 vintage, Nerello has shown great potential for making sparkling wines.
Great acidity, low color concentration and other elements from the terroir help give this wine great character, finesse and elegance. The remarkable structure and persistence are due to the red grapes used. The fine perlage, on the other hand, is the result of slow aging on the lees.
