The Glera grapes of our Civranetta estate are nourished with bands of “Caranto”, the ancient Pleistocene stratification, which is composed of compact clay-loam soils with calcareous nodules. The peculiar minerality of this soil, located near the Lagoon of Venice, conveys a complex aromatic balance to every single grape, while the proximity to the sea and to its winds gives them a distinctive sapidity, which increases their aromas.
The first fermentation takes place after the grapes are pressed. Once the wine has been stabilized, we start the second fermentation with a Charmat method, which lasts 6 to 7 weeks, reaching a pressure of 2,5 bar.
