Extra Brut
Speciale 1988



1988 is a unique, rare product. To fully appreciate it, all the “ingredients” that make up this spumante have to be considered: not only the best mountain Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes with the ideal acidity and the perfect maturation for a Trentodoc production; but also the features of the grotto, our expertise and time. The 17,000 bottles produced in 1988 have been laying in the almost unreal stillness and darkness of our cave, in a stable temperature of 13 degrees. With our hands, knowledge and passion we have been turning all the bottles - first every 6 months, then every 3 years - to move the yeasts. And of course time has been doing its job. Only few bottles of 1988 are still available.
