It’s obtained by grapes of the homonymous wine variety for at least the 90% and by other grapes of similar colour recommended or authorised excluding the aromatic ones. Ortrugo wine presents a maximum production of 12 tonnes per hectare and a wine yield of 70%. Its colour is straw yellow tending to greenish, a characteristic and delicate scent, dry and medium sweet flavour with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Its alcoholic content is 11% by volume; two typologies are expected: the sparkling one and the Spumante.
Both of them are great as aperitifs and they go well with the starters, but also white meats, fish, soups and cheeses that are not too savoury. It should be served at 10° C.
