The Pinot Nero from Oltrepò meets the Chardonnay from Trentino. Same 2011 vintage, yet the style is diametrically opposed: richness and purity. These two cuvées say a great deal about the maturity level achieved within the Metodo Classico in Italy. We strongly believe that Prosecco's impressive numbers hide another truth: many Metodo Classico’s territories in Italy have leaped forward. From year to year, the aromatic profile has been enhanced, and so has the character, incisiveness, and territorial cohesion.
More and more winemakers are trying their hand at it, the producers’ awareness and the whole territory is increasing. On the one hand, there is a vineyard at 500 meters in the Trentino region that gives rise to a surprising Trento doc, that comes out of an-ever experimenting winery; on the other hand, a Pinot Nero from Oltrepò Pavese that is the result of the fierce determination of a young man who is coming into his own with some signature cuvées.
