WINE MAKING PROCESS: the three varieties are vinified separately. With the soft crushing of the whole bunches we get about 50 litres of must per 100 kg of grapes. The production follows the steps of the champenoise method.

THE WINE - Color: straw yellow. Bubbles: elegant, creamy and persistent. Bouquet: yeast, bread crust and the typical fruity notes of apple and pear of the Chardonnay and Vespaiola grapes. Taste and aftertaste: our wine is dry but velvety; the typical notes of a Champagne style sparkling wine are made even more interesting by the mineral notes deriving from our volcanic soils. The aftertaste is fresh and persistent and invite you to a second sip.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: 6°

- 100% recyclable corks;
- recyclable shrink wraps, produced using biodegradable raw materials and green energy;
- labels from recycled paper;
- boxes from 50% mill broke and 50% recycled paper.
