The consistent quality achieved by the LEVII sparkling wine production is rewarded with recognition of the Trento D.O.C. A classic method production universally recognized as a synonym of quality, history and excellence.
The processing includes numerous phases each of equally valuable importance, on which LEVII guarantees dedication and care.
The vineyards lie at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites between 650 and 700 meters and are characterized by high slopes with a southern exposure. This results in optimal solar radiation and high daily temperature ranges that assures the attainment of high quality base grapes. It is possible to reach full ripeness by safeguarding the acidity component and the incorporation of aromatic compounds. Components that characterize our Trento Doc.
The varieties grown are the principal grapes for the production of the classic method, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The training system is Simple Guyot with a hectare density of 7,000 vines. The productions are very low, around 70-80 q / hectare.
In terms of vine health an integrated control against the various pathogens of the vine is implemented, mainly downy mildew and powdery mildew. A great help is given by the Ora del Garda, a daily breeze that rises just after noon and hits our vineyards, ventilating and avoiding the onset of fungal diseases. The green processes of checkering and early peeling are carried out to expose the bunches directly to sunlight and air. Finally, a topping operation is carried out to contain the crown. No botrytis is utilsed.
The harvest is purely manual with selection of the bunches in the field. The grapes are placed in bins with a capacity limited to 200 kg to avoid crushing and bursting the berries.
