Champenoise Method sparkling wine PerSchers

History and facts

“PerSchers” , as a joke, was born in 2008 as a challenge to enhance our hills, showing them through an original champenoise-method sparkling wine. PerSchers is rare and precious due to its uniqueness and to the tight link with the territory. It is made from a white grapes cuvée.

The Label

The label reflects the proprieties and the story of the wine following Cascina Albano style. The will to dare meets the traditional champenoise-method and comes out in the draw of a lady with aristocratic hairs, typical of eighteen century. She is having a bath and the bubbles remind to the thin PerSchers perlage, which, as the poem says, never stops surprising us. The colors and the silver represents the structure of the wine and its complex and elegant perfumes.

Vinification

The grapes, which are pickled in the first hours of the morning, are put to a soft pressing, separating the freerunning must from the peels. The must is kept in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for the static settling and then it is vinified under low temperatures so to preserve all the aromas. During spring time, in the phase of waxing moon, the wine has a second fermentation; this process is made in bottle and it is followed by a period of sur-lie aging in a fresh and dark room in the cellar. All this is made following the exact champenoise-method process.
