Wine maker notes
The grapes for Luccio Bello Rosso are sourced from the provinces of Asti and Alessandria located in the Piedmont region of Italy. The vineyards are planted on rolling hills which provide optimum growing conditions.
After harvest is complete in late September, the de-stemmed grapes are placed in stainless steel tanks where maceration takes place on the skins at 50° F to extract delicate aromas and rich color. After 48 hours the grape must is separated from the skins and stored in temperature controlled tanks throughout the year at a temperature of 32° F until fermentation and bottling is required. This guarantees a fresh, bright wine for every bottling throughout the year.
In preparation for bottling the grape must is allowed to naturally heat to a temperature of 65° F. As the must warms, fermentation begins slowly turning the grape must into wine. Fermentation takes place in a pressurized tank prohibiting the natural CO2 gas that is produced during fermentation to escape. Once the desired alcohol and pressure level is obtained the process is halted and the wine is filtered and bottled. This unique wine making process produces a lusciously sweet wine in the Frizzante (soft bubbles) style.
Pairs well with grilled meats, cheese, pizza or chocolate desserts.
