WAI Provincia di Pavia IGT 2017
Frizzante style wine sur lie refermented in the bottle (topped by a crown cap). Tank Fermentation is interrupted by the cold with 20 gr/l of residual sugar and then the wine bottled. With the rising of the temperature the following spring, the wine completes the fermentation without adding any frozen must to the base still wine. This is a blend of Pinot Noir (70%) and Riesling Italico and is totally unfiltered and undisgorged (aka made in the ancestral method). WAI is a traditional greeting in the Thai language and the name was chosen by Gianluca’s mother in law. Definitely a fun and tasty wine.
Beside the white version, Belvedere produces the WAI Rosè, made of 100% Pinot Nero, and he Wai red (50% Croatina – 25% Pinot Nero -25% Barbera).
