Grandiose rose sparkling wine from the Refosk grape - Extra Brut
The Refosk grapes for Santomas Conte del Monte are harvested early. The vineyards of the Santomas winery stretch high above Koper in Slovenian Istria. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is aged on the lees in a large 3000L oak barrel for a year, without the addition of sulphur.
This is followed by a classic bottle fermentation of 15 months. The yeast remains in the bottle, keeping it alive for a long time and giving the sparkling wine a slight natural cloudiness.
A bright salmon pink in the glass, which shows the Refosk grape variety. The Santomas Conte del Monte is wonderfully complex on the nose. We perceive raspberry, pomegranate, black olives and a light note of yeast. This continues on the palate, coupled with the warm bread crust aroma that we love so much in sparkling wines of this class. Rounded off by the fresh acidity of the Refosk.
A unique sparkling wine made using the classic method from the Santomas winery in Slovenian Istria. A pure delight for the senses.
