ADDITIONAL NOTES:
Consistent with its continuous and inexhaustible "Search for Excellence" even in its Piedmontese soul, the Banfi company has believed in the Alta Langa project since its first steps.

Banfi, in fact, was one of the seven companies that accepted the bet to start a production of quality classic method sparkling wines in Piedmont since the early 1990s, thus claiming the Piedmontese roots of the Italian sparkling wine sector. The project continued over the years and in 1997 the "Cuvée Aurora" was born, precisely with the intention of evoking the idea of ​​a new frontier, a new "dawn" of quality Classic Method production in Piedmont.
The "Cuvée Aurora Alta Langa DOCG Banfi" project is, therefore, the best visiting card of the Banfi Piemonte company, which tells an interpretation of the Classic Method of Piedmont "par excellence and of excellence".
COMPOSITION OF THE CUVÉE :
Pinot Noir (minimum 70%) and Chardonnay (maximum 30%) harvested by hand and coming exclusively from vineyards grown on the high hills of Piedmont, in a specific area of ​​the provinces of Cuneo, Asti and Alessandria.
PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE:
The soft pressing of the grapes is followed by static clarification of the must, which is subjected exclusively to fermentation at a controlled temperature (17° C). The cuvée is composed for at least 90% of the wine thus obtained and for the remaining part from the wine of the previous vintage, aged in French oak barriques. Fermentation takes place in the bottle according to the Classic Method, with permanence on the lees for at least 40 months. Traditional remuage on pupitres and dégorgement à la glace. The sugar dosage is Extra Brut, around 4 g/l. An ideal refinement in the bottle follows.
