(battonage). According to old tradition, in spring the wine completes the
alcoholic fermentation in the bottle where residual sugars are transformed by
its own yeasts into alcohol and carbon dioxide, obtaining a natural sparkling
wine. After a few months in the bottle, the wine is ready to be enjoyed but can
also be stored for years. The naturalness of the wine is confirmed by the total
absence of chemical product residuals. All procedures both in the fields and
in the cellar, are carried out according to the Maria Thun biodynamic calendar.
