A Blend Old And New
Sacchetto production methods are a blend of modern ideas with tradition. In its careful approach to winemaking, they use 100% Pinot Grigio grapes. They process the harvest by the traditional soft pressing of the grapes. After separation of the skins, there is a period of managed skin contact, then into cool fermentation. The process uses temperature controlled stainless steel tanks this method helps retain the original fruit aromas.
Color And Light
The Sacchetto Pinot Grigio Spumante Blush’s pale salmon pink color comes from brief mixing of the pink pinot grape skins in the fermentation process. The Winemakers use the long Charmat method to add lightness. They add sparkling effervescence in this fragrant pink wine by extended fermentation. The winemakers send the mix through a secondary fermentation of approximately three months to produce gases, and they then bottle it under pressure to preserve the bubbly elegance.
The tasting notes reflect the winemaker’s care; they describe a slightly dry sparkling wine, with a mildly sweet, lingering taste. The bouquet is a fruit and floral aroma. The serving suggestions urge to serve chilled, use it as an aperitif or to accompany appetizers, delicate tastes, and fish based dishes.
