Exclusive and limited edition.
The first bubbles of Tenuta del Paguro have arrived.
10 YEARS OF WAITING
From the harvest to the emergence of Mare Urchin
Tenuta del Paguro is founded
the first winery in the world to apply the underwater refining method.
Mare Urchin grapes
Vinification of what will become Mare Urchin takes place. The grapes are directly pressed, separating the flower from the second of press. The flower must, after a slight static decantation, is started for fermentation at a controlled temperature.
Bottling and aging
Draught in February 2013 is performed by resting on the lees that will last 100 long months.
Immersion at meters -52
Disgorgement in June 2021 and immersion in Portofino's Baia degli Inglesi.
Mare Urchin emergers
Of the few bottles available, a part was destined for scientific research laboratories on the underwater refinement method. Less than 300 bottles will ever be available for sale.
The Mare Urchin grapes are harvested in 2012. The 100 months of aging on the lees embellish each bottle of this limited edition.
The bottles were immersed in suspension: the pressure exerted by the bubbles inside the bottle is compensated by the pressure of the water at a depth of 52 meters.
The particularities of the circumstances that led to the creation of Mare Urchin are unrepeatable. The ensuing edition is unique.
