When the trip is as important as the destination, when terroir is made of persons, when patience is the main characteristic you have Kaskal, the name that we have chosen for our classic method. In ancient Sumeric language it means “The way to the king”: a way to explore the high potential of a noble vine, a walk made of cares, hopes, pauses to reach the best quality.
On average clayey and calcareous, with a strong marl presence.
In the vineyard
Mid September, hand picking, only by the tips of the grape.
In the cellar
Classic Method, extra brut, 45 months on the lees. Malolactic does not occur.
Selected yeasts from Castelli private collection.
Alone or with all kind of food. Always.
The color takes you into the extraordinary: yellow, but with strong bronze nouances that gives to the wine the sense of
richness and structure. Fine perlage, elegant and persistent. Fascinating and complex nose: fresh of bread and mature of aging meeting a light aroma of bark. Chamomille, honey, figs, tobacco and hydrocarbons slowly enrich the bouquet.
At the palate sapidity and structure are in perfect balance, materic and mineral, with the acidic part from the tips that leads the taste progression, from tannic references to salted notes, feelings of a great volume. The final is rewawrding, sweet, fat, from the 45 months on the lees. Great!
