A long Charmat made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes which underlines Bortolomiol’s enthusiasm to take sparkling wine making in new directions. On the occasion of the visit of an illustrious guest, a few friends came to Giuliano asking for a unique, refined and very dry sparkling wine. For the talented wine maker this was the moment to present a cuvée that he’d been working on in order to produce an Extra Brut. And so the Riserva del Governatore sparkling wine was born. It was a success.
Here the aromas are rather more complex than just simply pleasant. The wine rests for longer on the yeasts and has a good structure which underlines a deep and lasting aromatic profile. The fragrances are released from the wine little by little giving a structured character. Dry and fresh in the mouth, this wine is perfect as a contrast to rich fried meat and fish dishes.
