ALBA WHITE TRUFFLE
Truffles are hypogeal mushrooms, like all fungi they reproduce with spores and they take different scents according to the species of tree they grow near. The first batch (Sept/Oct) grows right below the surface and are subjected to deterioration by worms and wood mice, if the temperature is not ideal, they go off easily. The new moon of October usually signs the good ones, as the temperature drops and truffles go deeper in the soil to protect themselves, therefore no worms and no mice are feasting. Alba white truffle is definitely recognised as the most premium of the same kind, it is know as the white diamond because of its preciousness and prestigiousness.
ALTA LANGA BLANC DE NOIR DOCG
GRAPE VARIETY Pinot Nero 100% AGEING At this point the must begins fermenting in steel tanks. Fermentation lasts about 20 days, maintaining temperatures between 18 and 20°C. After the fermentation, the wine ages on its lees until the following spring. In May, the wine is ready for a second fermentation, in the bottle, followed by further ageing on the lees for a good 36 months in a cool and dark environment, as per the traditions of Spumante Metodo Classico. SENSORY PROFILE In the glass it has a straw-yellow color with light golden reflections and a fine, persistent perlage that contributes to enhancing the aromas of fruit with white pulp, dried fruit, and bread crust. On the palate you immediately perceive the typical structure of Pinot Noir enhanced by the pleasant creaminess of the bubbles. Long persistence, freshness, and excellent flavor are the sensations that endure in the mouth and in the memory after tasting Alta Langa Mirafiore.
