Millesimato Brut Classico TRENTODOC
Spumante Brut Classico
Made with Chardonnay grapes harvested and vinified directly by the Pisoni family, this Spumante is produced according to “Metodo Classico” with a second fermentation in the bottle - known as “champenoise” in France.
Each bottle is dated and marked with the year of its vintage and degorgement.
This Spumante has an attractive, lustrous straw yellow color with greenish tinges and a fine, timid yet persistent perlage.
This wine is ample, refined and immediate on the nose, with fruity notes followed by flowery tones and concluding with an intense aroma created by the long period of contact between wine and yeast.

By hand collecting Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, cultivated partially in the bottom of the valley and partially on the terraced hillsides of the Valle dei Laghi, we obtain the BASE WINE, to which, in the spring following the harvest, we add sugar and yeast, before bottling it (tirage).
Rest inside the bottle and the work of the yeast are the cause of the second fermentation.
This is why TRENTODOC is also defined as a "wine that is re-fermented in the bottle".
PRISE DE MOUSSE
The PRISE DE MOUSSE is the process through which carbon dioxide is developed, which can be seen in the glass by its classic perlage. It is the result of re-fermentation and rest in the bottle, which takes place in our cool cellar carved out of the rock.
The cellar is a tunnel obtained from an old air raid shelter built in the mountainside during the Second World War.
It is entirely unique, as it guarantees a naturally constant temperature of 12 °C all year round.
The maturing period for TRENTODOC varies from a minimum of 24 months, to an average of 3 years, to 80-90 months for the RISERVA, which are fundamental in reaching significant sensory complexity.
This is another phase in the “Metodo Classico” spumante-making process.
TRENTODOC bottles are set out on special wooden stands, also called pupitres, which help to correctly perform the daily remuage: bottles are carefully turned and shaken for 22-24 days, so that the yeast will collect in the neck, just beneath the temporary crown cap.
In order to facilitate the gradual rotation, each bottle is marked on the bottom with a white pain mark, which can even be seen on the finished product: a mark that uniquely distinguishes each bottle of TRENTODOC.
Also referred to as dégorgement, this operation makes it possible to remove the yeast deposit which, as a result of the remuage phase, has formed in the neck of the bottle, allowing us to obtain a clear finished product.
Each bottle, after the neck is frozen - allowing us to block the yeast deposit in place - is opened. Thanks to the internal pressure developed during re-fermentation, this allows the deposit itself to be expelled from the bottle.
At this point, before being closed with a cork and safety cage, the bottles are topped up with fine wine and a few drops of the precious and secret liqueur d'expédition - the finishing touches to the personality of each TRENTODOC.
