Punto Crena Lumassina 2009

Punto Crena Lumassina 2009

750ML

Review
Bone dry frizzante. Crisp, savory. Organic. 1 hectare estate situated 1.2km from the sea. Thinking seafood fritto misto. Shrimp, for sure. Oysters, too.

Technical notes
Closed-vat alcoholic fermentation traps bubbles to create a frizzante wine; no second fermentation. Generally no malolactic fermentation, depending on the conditions (esp. acidity level) of each vintage. Wines spend two months on the lees.

Other text
The native Lumassina (loo-mahss-SEE-nah) is a cousin of Matạssu and has a similarly difficult vegetative balance. Punta Crena’s still bottling has a snail on the label because the grape ripens very slowly (it is also a pun on the name Lumassina, which resembles the Italian word for snail, “lumaca”).
