2011 Corsa "Cuvée Cima Coppi" Brut Rosé Trento D.O.C.
Trentino is a perfect area for classic sparkling wine production, we are at the mountains once again with this tremendous bubbly Rosé. Trento DOC is a famous sparkling wine production zone using Metodo Classico. This is a natural method whereby the wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle before being left to mature- in the case of the Cuvée Cima Coppi- for twenty four months on the lees. Named for the highest point of the Giro d'Italia, referred to as the Cima Coppi. The Giro d'Italia and Trento D.O.C. are both iconic Italian cultural references with the 1st edition of the Giro d'Italia was 1909 while Trento D.O.C. was concieved of in 1902 by a young Giulio Ferrari who had a dream to put into bottle the soul of the alpine culture, the spirits of the woods and Dolomite peaks.
Corsa 'Cuvée Cima Coppi' takes its inspiration from both of these aspects and we hope that you enjoy our potion of captured Dolomite energy.
