Extra Brut Organic wine

Alta Langa DOCG

Extra Brut Millésimé

This Extra Brut cuvée is made from 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay grapes from organic farming.
Cultivated on the same soil and in the same plot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay originate in a vineyard from the territory of Monforte d’Alba, where factors such as the mix of white, calcareous and dry marly soils , the west exposure and the particularly high altitude cooperate to develop a very healthy fruit.
This specific vineyard has proven suitable for organic cultivation, producing high quality grapes which have given, after careful vinification and a long rest on the lees, an Alta Langa DOCG Extra Brut with perfect balance and great finesse.

Vinification and sparkling wine making

The Cocchi style, even before it is in the glass, can already be recognized in the winemaking: the pressing of the grapes and the fermentation of the different plots takes place separately for the two grape varieties in steel vats, without using wood.
After a careful selection of the best small batches, these are cold-fermented without using any fining agents, and finally blended.
The slow maturation cycle on the lees of this special organic cuvée continued until the first disgorging of the batch which took 46 months. The wine is an extra brut.

Tasting notes

Clear and crystalline in its straw colour with greenish reflections. Very delicate and fine initial olfactory impact. Floral of yarrow and hawthorn. Riper hints of gorse and acacia then leave room for fresh lemon, grapefruit and pomelo juices. Sensations that leave the mouth clean and clear without giving bitterness. Light limestone flavour and white pepper accompany the finish of Mediterranean herbs and nori seaweed, giving smoothness and pleasantness to the sip.
