Based in Emilia-Romagna, Cevico is the second biggest Italian wine producer, representing 18 wineries and with over 6,700 hectares under vine. This is one of the most impressive companies producing wine. As well as the benefits of size, Cevico offer a myriad of small estates producing a bewildering array of wines, from both established and lesser-known appellations.
Re-fermentation took place in an autoclave using the Charmat method, for one month at a controlled temperature of 15°C, using only selected yeasts. The wine spent 15 days on its lees adding a creamy texture and complexity to the final wine. It was bottled at 2.5 atmospheres of pressure.
Emilia-Romagna concentrates the specialties Italy is world famous for: Parmeggiano Reggiano, prosciuto, mortadella, Modena cherries, Pasta Bolognese, and delicious fruity gelati... Hence the Pignoletto is a food friendly sparkling wine, which is dry enough to balance the acidity of tomatoes, but round and fruity enough to softly accompany cheeses, fish and creamy pasta dishes.
