Trentodoc, the toast for every occasion
All the secrets of the classic-method sparkling wine made between the Alps and Lake Garda
Trentodoc embodies the character of the land that creates it, Trentino. The region may be small, but its climate has huge variety, from the Mediterranean moods of Garda to the snow-capped Dolomite peaks – a UNESCO World Heritage site. Only grapes from hereabouts can become the metodo classico sparkling wine, in a maturing process that takes up to a decade.
Trentodoc bubbles form naturally through a second fermentation in the bottle.
There are three crucial ingredients to a Trentodoc: grapes from Trentino, freshly harvested and carefully selected; an expert winemaker; and endless patience. For the wines take from 15 months to 10 years to mature.
Trentodoc is a prized sparkling wine with a personality all its own, courtesy of the region’s characteristic topography, varied climate and high altitudes. This genuine mountain sparkling wine is one of the finest fizzes in Italy.
The Trentodoc rules require producers to:
- cultivate the vines meticulously and select the grapes with care
- use exclusively Trentino grapes
- prefer original varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and/or Pinot Meunier
- conduct a second fermentation in the bottle
- ensure prolonged contact with the yeasts for a long maturing process.
But our producers don’t stop there. They always leave the wine on the lees for longer, for example, to achieve an even better end result.
