The Brut Corte Giacobbe encapsulates the Dal Cero style: fresh, intriguing, mineral, and unmistakable on the palate. A blend of Durella and Chardonnay grapes from the hillside vineyards of Roncà, the wine undergoes vinification with whole-cluster pressing and controlled-temperature fermentation at 13°C in steel tanks. Maturation takes place in stainless steel with once-weekly bâtonnage of the fine lees, followed by secondary fermentation in the bottle with cultured yeasts. The entire process requires a minimum of 24-36 months. The wine presents a dense, leisurely bead that lends luminosity to its intense straw-yellow color tinged with gold. On the nose, it offers vibrant impressions of tropical fruit, followed by Asian spices and an intriguing hint of sulfur. The palate is impressively tangy, crisp, and fruit-rich, with a note of citron. The finish concludes with a touch of earthy minerality. Perfect as an exceptional aperitif, it also pairs wonderfully with antipasti and first courses of fish and shellfish.
