"Crisp and savory, this dry sparkler has aromas of chamomile, bread dough, Mediterranean scrub and citrus. Tangy and elegantly sparkling, the racy palate delivers energy and tension, featuring Meyer lemon, yellow apple, white pepper and saline mineral notes framed with vibrant acidity."
Vinous Reverie Notes
The production technique is inspired by the one used for the Pinot Noir Grapes of Champagne. For this wine, a particular selection of Nerello Mascalese grapes having a large, tightly packed bunch and which are harvested before their complete maturation to get high juice yield. Estate discovered the potential of the Nerello Mascalese grapes for the production of sparkling wine at the end of the 1980s and was the first to produce this type of wine in the territory of Mt Etna. The notable structure of the wine derives from the characteristics of the grapes and the long maturation on the yeasts and is exalted by the mineral quality of the soils where the grapes grow. It is an ideal wine for convivial moments and goes well with entrée, light first courses and seafood.
