Our Sparkling

Since 2014, we have been producing a brut sparkling wine obtained from Arneis grapes, a unique product of this sort. In fact, it maintains the best features of the Arneis grapes: ductility, long life and strong aromas.

The grapes come from the Cavajé vineyard giving its name to the wine. The ancient owner was a Knight (in our dialect Cavajè) and people still say “let’s go working in the vineyard of the Cavajé”.

The soil is very fresh and gives optimal acidity and the ideal organoleptic qualities for the production of Arneis.  Usually the harvest is made at the beginning of September after a precise evaluation of the chemical-physical analysis.

After the crushing and destemming to extract the juice from the grapes, the fermentation in steel vats starts and proceeds slowly at the controlled temperature of 12-13°C , to reduce the loss of the aromatic compounds to the minimum.

During the winter, the wine is submitted to the batonnage, a technique consisting in stirring the noble lees on the bottom of the vats to enhance its aromas and structure.

In February, the wine is poured into autoclaves for re-fermentation, where, thanks to very low temperatures, 10-11° C, a very fine and persistent perlage forms without affecting the aromatic compounds.

At the end of June, the fermentation is completed and the wine is bottled and left in the cellar to rest a few months.

Cavajè shows a light straw yellow colour with bright green reflexes.

Appealing and pleasant at the nose, showing the typical characteristics of Arneis, i.e. its floral and fruity hints.

Fine on the palate, with the elegance of the fine and persistent perlage.

 Ideal as an aperitif and optimal ingredient for sparkling wine cocktails. Pleasant to conclude a meal.
