How to Serve the Wine - Refrigerate the bottle for 48hours in the fridge upside down. Before to open the crown cork, immerge the neck of the bottle in ice and water. With the opener remove the cork to eliminate the yeast and turn the bottle immediately up. This execution is done to have a more elegant wine, or if you are more a purist, keep the bottle refrigerate for a day, swirl the wine for a minute to disolve the yeast and after you can proceed to open the bottle.
