IN THE BLANC DE NOIR’S EXUBERANCE

For a hundred and fifty years, the Nerello Mascalese has been the soul of the Gangemi family
We persist in studying it to enhance excellent sparkling wines, experimenting with increasingly longer aging and delicate dosages.

Heroic high-altitude vineyards, sixty months on the lees and zero dosage are the essence of Bollenere Brut Nature.
Begin your gathering by letting yourself be enchanted by its spicy and entising aromas. Sophisticated and well-balanced, it embodies the authentic mineral spirit of Mount Etna.

IN THE VINEYARD

TERRAIN

High-altitude heroic vineyards on the northern slope of Etna, on very fertile lava soils naturally rich in mineral salts, with wide temperature variations from day to night, especially during the ripening stage.

TRAINING SYSTEM

Bush and cordon training.

HARVEST

The Nerello Mascalese grapes are picked by hand in mid-September, before they are fully ripe, to preserve their zesty acidity and moderate sugar content.

VINE AGE

Over 20 years.

yield PER HECTARE

70 quintals (7000 kg) per ha.

IN THE WINERY

Vinification: gentle whole-bunch pressing, for vinification as a white wine. The first fermentation takes place at low temperatures. The second fermentation is in the bottle, in accordance with the Champenoise method (Metodo Classico), in the spring following harvest.

Ageing: after the second fermentation, the wine remains on its lees for at least 60 months in our underground ageing cellars, a unique and fascinating place you can see when you visit the winery.
