Writing about the sparkling history of the beautiful Italic country is always a way to go back to the pioneering origins of people who have dedicated to this type of production, a passion that is a mix of adventure, stimulation and ever more attentive research to those balances that are always born to interior of a vineyard and the result then in the glass wants to be the same blend of emotions, even though sought after by our pioneers, in many years of never perfect balance, never safe investments.
Among the sparkling wines that have made the history of this typology in Italy, there is certainly the Equipe 5, a classic method resulting from the competence and intuition of the time, 5 young winemakers, members of one of the most interesting winemaking adventures in our country: Leonello Letrari, Bepi Andreaus, Ferdinando Tonon, Pietro Tura and Riccardo Zanetti.
Since some years Equipe 5 is managed by Cantina di Soave, that continues in the project of valorization of this historic Italian bubbles.
A new important element is added to the history of this sparkling wine, the Equipe 5 "Riserva dei Cinque", a fruit of long maturation on yeasts, 10 years of aging in bottle, for a wine obtained from a good percentage of Pinot Noir that, combined with Chardonnay, it enhances the two vines Principles of world sparkling wine.
Pouring this wine, the eye ends up in a yellow color that is still so brilliant, enhanced by very fine and very persistent bubbles that bring an intoxicating perfume of rare elegance into the air.
On the nose this sparkling wine brings out its long pause on the yeasts, with memories of ancient bread making of different grains and well harmonized, with fruit and flowers that are mixed in a perfume of the cellar tied to the experience. On the palate the effervescence balanced with acidity creates a harmony that arrives in the final aftertaste to ennoble together all the emotion of the tasting.
Recommended with dishes that have a good fat component because it amazes in cleanliness and enhances its rich and pleasantly persistent structure
