We are excited to be serving Lunetta Rosé at StyleChicago’s The Art of Fashion (Runway Show) presented by Cadillac on Thursday, October 19, 2017.
Lunetta, (Little Moon in Italian) celebrates life’s small pleasures. Lunetta Rosé is produced by Cavit, internationally recognized as northern Italy’s largest and most reliable source of quality variety wines, at Cavit’s state-of-the-art sparkling wine facility just outside the regional capital of Trento. It is the largest facility in Italy dedicated exclusively to producing world-class sparkling wines.
Vinification: The harvest is done manually in the first 10 days of September. The Chardonnay grapes are then pressed softly to obtain the ‘flower of the grape musts’. After settling for 10-12 hours, they begin to ferment in stainless steel tanks at 18-20 degrees C(65-68 F). Fermentation lasts for 30 days. The red grapes are harvested early to maintain good acid structure and vinified ‘in rose’ in order to impart the characteristic cherry red color once the cuvee is created. The fermented varieties of red and white grapes are then blended together. The wine is then promptly bottled and released.
