Vintage Millesimato Riserva 2010 Pluto

The vintage is characterized by a severe and prolonged winter. Heavy snowfall ensured important water reserves in the soil. Early summer was characterized by heavy rainfall and a few hail events. The mild temperatures of early August were followed by an increase throughout September. This was a singular vintage from a climatic point of view. White grapes yielded very fresh wines with pronounced acidity, and red grapes took advantage of the warm end of the season.

Winemaking Information

FERMENTATION PROCESS: grape bunches are hand-sorted on a vibrating table and softly pressed in a nitrogen inert environment with yield in free-run must of 45%. This process is “100% screw conveyor free” to handle grapes as gently as possible. The must is fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature and kept 6 months on lees with bâtonnage.

SPARKLING METHOD: is carried out according to the traditional method of fermentation in the bottle, with aging on lees for at least 140 months and late disgorgement. We proudly avoid any liqueur d’expédition realising Zero 140 as Pas Dosé.

The difference is...

Zero 140 Riserva Pas Dosé Rosé de Saignée is the best representation of the Alta Langa Metodo Classico longevity. The extraordinary almost-12 years long ageing on lees controls the power of the Pinot Noir vinified with the “Saignée” technique. The firm decision to avoid any liqueur d’expédition allows to maintain the original character of the terroir without compromises.
