Ca’ de Lion was founded in 1871 by Luigi Ghione, who was inspired by his farthest ancestor, Leone Ghione (1655), from whom the winery took its name. From then, five generations are gone and the winery takes care of its history, affairs and evolutions of technique. Last 50 years are the consolidations of company development and awareness: Ca’ de Lion produces and vinifies all its wines with last technologies about bottling and product processing. But it’s Tradition the key word for this company reality: respect for territory grapes, respect for traditional wine making practices, respect for their roots and for the time’s lessons.
The Pinot Noir grapes are pressed for about 3 hours in order to extract a limited amount of coloring matter, followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature and later on “prise de mousse” will take place.
This is a pleasantly sparkling wine, with a bouquet of strawberry and cherry.
Recommended serving temperature: 6° — 8°C
Ideal from aperitif to fish dishes… really at 360°!
