ITALIAN SPARKLING WINE
47 AD has a dream to create a unique sparkling blend of native grapes from the Veneto Region. That dream is the 47 Gran Cuvèe “I Blanc”, a perfect blend of Verduzzo and Pinot Grigio grapes. The vinification process to create sparkling wine with these grapes took over two years of research for the estate owner Cristian and his Enologist to develop. It requires a unique and unconventional vinification process to get the desired results that are unique to 47 Anno Domini.
Inspired by the French’s Champagne winemaking, a new method was created from a combination of the Champenois and Charmat methods. Harvested by hand late in the season and dried for a month in the “fruttaio,” this drying process results in grapes with a high sugar concentration and low water content. The Verduzzo grapes are fermented separately from the Pinot Grigio grapes, at a low controlled temperature.
