Harvest period. Pinot Nero is harvested at the end of August before grapes are fully ripe in order to maintain their aroma and freshness.
Vinification. Pinot Rosa sparkling brut is obtained from the vinification as rosé of Pinot Nero and successive sparkling process. Grapes are harvested a few days before they are fully ripe to achieve higher acidity and freshness levels. They are then treaded and left to rest for a few hours with the skins so the must can develop the right colour and aroma. After alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature, the base wine undergoes a second fermentation in autoclaves according to the charmat method.
