Giol - Luisa Frizzante IGT

Giol

A beautiful sparkling rose ! Seductively soft pink in the glass with refreshing floral aromas and hints of cherry and fresh cut strawberries.  Outstanding packaging in a clear glass bottle highlights the gorgeous color. Versatile with food allowing balanced and interesting pairings as it melds the freshness of sparkling wine with the complexity of Merlot. 

Serving Temperature: 10-12°C / 50-54°F 

Giol is the oldest bonded winery in Italy, registered in 1427, and has been organically farming since 1986. 

Winemaking

After harvesting and the addition of yeasts, the merlot grapes are drawn off their skins, leaving the must with a soft hue. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 14°C and is followed by racking, light clarification to stabilize the proteins, and subsequent filtration. Bottling occurs after the second fermentation in steel pressure tanks, where the internal pressure increases for a month to 2.5 atm until fermentation is complete. The wine is then clarified before final filtration.
