Rose Brut Spumante, Carpene Malvolti, Italy

Ever since 1868, the year in which renowned enologist Antonio Carpenè founded the Company, the name Carpenè Malvolti has represented the story of sparkling wine making in Italy.

Carpenè Malvolti has been the first winery in Italy to perfect the use of the Charmat Method for the production of high-quality sparkling wines. For four generations, the Carpenè family has worked together with carefully selected vine growers to produce the very best from the hillsides of the Veneto - and of Conegliano in particular - in order to guarantee absolutely top quality throughout the Carpenè Malvolti product range.

From a blend of two grape varieties cultivated in this region - Pinot Nero and the indigenous Raboso which, as early as in 1881, Antonio Carpenè indicated as an important and indeed aristocratic cultivar of the Treviso area - comes Carpené's new cuvee, Rosé Carpenè Brut.

Blend: 85% Pinot Noir & 15% Raboso

Soil: Pinot Nero: A French clone, cultivated between the Piave and Livenza Rivers on clay soils veined with caranto, a particular type of limestone that accentuates the wine's floral perfumes and its tangy, savoury qualities on the palate.
Raboso: Cultivated in the vicinity of the River Piave on stony alluvial soils.

Winemaking: Pinot Nero: Soft pressing in order to obtain just the free-run juice. Fermentation takes place with the aid of very carefully selected yeasts. After this has been completed, and following a number of rackings, the wine is stored on its lees.
Raboso: The grapes are picked in the Gellisaia vineyard and are then dried on racks. The must ferments on the skins and after fermentation, the wine goes into oak casks for a brief period of time

Blending: The wines are blended and then transformed into a sparkling wine using the Charmat Method.

Serve: At 8 to 10C to accompany seafood risottos, richly flavoured fish such as salmon, trout and eel, white meats and goat's cheese.

Tasting Notes: Deep pink with hints of crimson, the wine has a perfumed floral bouquet, with elegant yet intense notes of wild berries and Morello cherries. It is full, tangy with rounded fruit on the palate.
