Ponte Rosso Extra Brut DOCG

Description

Ponte Rosso lies not far from the Castle of San Salvatore, with soils that are quite clay-rich. In fact, in the past, the reddish clay here was quarried to make the roof tiles and bricks that went to build the houses for the village of the Counts of Collalto. Bricks made from the intensely-red clay were so distinctive that the name of the bridge made from them is Ponte Rosso, the red bridge.

Sommelier notes

Tasting

The eye is first drawn to its appealing straw yellow, with subtle, green-flecked highlights, then to a vigorous cascade of pin-point bubbles that creates a creamy, vivacious mousse which seems to linger forever. The ultra-fragrant bouquet is redolent of fully-ripe Pink Lady apple and the heritage San Pietro pear over a delicately floral background. It is generous and beautifully-proportioned on entry, with an intriguing minerally edge, qualities that drive its lengthy progression laden with the same aromatic qualities encountered on the nose.

how to enjoy it

Food pairings

It is the classic partner to seafood in general, and in particular to shellfish and fat-rich fish, as well as lighter meats.  Enjoy at 6-8°C.
