Butòn 16-21 Classic Method Blanc de Noir Zerbosco
Pinot Noir has been cultivated for more than 150 years in Oltrepò Pavese, the first wine-growing area in Italy for the production of this noble variety. The sparkling wine tradition is well established in the Versa Valley, where there are the vineyards most suited to the production of Pinot Noir grapes for sparkling wine, with altitudes reaching up to 550 meters above sea level.
BUTÒN in our dialect means sprout. Pinot Noir is the earliest variety among those grown on the farm to sprout.
Color: Brilliant straw yellow with golden reflections.
Perlage: Fine and very persistent.
Bouquet: Fragrant and intriguing, excellent balance between fruity notes of white pulp peach, white flowers and cardamom.
Taste: Creamy and elegant, with an acid vein and a pleasant tannic note. Perfectly recognizable for the particular personality acquired thanks to the characteristics of the soil and the microclimate with which the grapes ripen.
The vineyard where we harvest the Pinot Noir grapes for the classic method is actually the last one where, in spring, we observe the vegetative revival of the vines, as it is located on a side with little exposure to the sun and one of the coolest and most ventilated in the area. . These environmental factors allow a slow ripening of the bunches while preserving the acidity and fresh aromas, distinctive characteristics to the tasting of our classic method. The budding of these vines marks, for our family, the beginning of a new vintage, a moment of great emotion and good omen as we wish it to be the opening of a bottle of BUTÒN.
