“Il velo rosa” is a sparkling rosé wine, obtained with Corvina Veronese grapes, a native vine of the province of Verona, usually used to produce red wines.
It is paired with “Il velo bianco”: they are in fact two sister wines, produced in 2018 and 2019 with the same ancestral method, that is the ancient classic method, in which fermentation starts through indigenous yeasts that develop spontaneously thanks to the natural sugars present in grapes. The ancestral method is characterized by the absence of disgorgement: the yeasts remain in the bottle and give the wine that cloudy and veiled effect typical of sparkling wines of the past. Therefore, nothing is removed and indeed the fresh and intense aroma of the grapes is left behind.
On the label there is a photo of the”canina” rose, taken in our farm, on the slopes of the terraces at the edge of the wood, where the Corvina vine is grown. This kind of rose is an ancient spontaneous plant, very common, whose petals are used for the preparation of jams and the dried fruits for herbal teas and decoctions. The reference to ancient traditions is the sign that distinguishes the production of Serene organic wines, but always with an innovative and sensitive eye to the environment.
“Il velo bianco” is a white sparkling wine produced with Pinot Grigio grapes, a universally known international grape variety. The sparkling wine method is called ancestral because it is an ancient method: fermentation takes place in the bottle as for the classic method, but the sugars used to start the bubble formation process are those naturally contained in the grapes. Unlike the traditional classic method, disgorgement is also not carried out, but the yeasts are left in the bottle and the wine is slightly cloudy. Hence the veiled effect of the wine, which also explains the name ‘velo’.
The label shows wild lilies, which grow spontaneously in the farm between the rows of vines and have multiplied especially after the conversion to organic production, finding a clean environment free from herbicides.
Lilies are white and are the symbol of purity, sometimes used in wedding bouquets or depicted in the ancient family crests of the Middle Ages, signifying ancient traditions and unspoiled nature.
