A traditional method sparkling rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir. It's a pale pink with a hint of floral on the nose. Cranberry and citrus notes, with dried fruit and a touch of buttery brioche. Pure and minimal, and a touch savoury. We think it rivals any top rosé Champagne, but is arguably more interesting, and certainly more affordable than most.
Story: Alessandra Divella is a young winemaker who makes outstanding traditional method sparkling wines in the small village of Gussago in Northeastern Franciacorta. She declines to label her wines Franciacorta though, as she believes the different soils of the area and her organic, handcrafted winemaking results in wines that are distinctly different to those of the larger region. ‘Clo Clo’ is named in honour of Alessandra's Swiss mother, Claudia, who has been a strong influence on her life. Alessandra calls this wine an introvert, saying “…you have to sit and get to know each other a little bit.”
Vinification: Thirty year-old vines in clay and limestone soils in the northeastern area of the Franciacorta region. The soils are markedly different here– with clay and limestone not found elsewhere in the region. Made from only the first pressing of the grapes, with spontaneous fermentation using ambient yeasts for 10 days. Vinification only in oak, and ageing on the lees in used small oak barrels for 42 months. No dosage, no fining and no filtration. January disgorgement. Production limited to only 1000 bottles
Match it with: Lobster, baked scallops or spicy Asian dishes.
