The grapes (100% Sagrantino) were carefully harvested, sorted, pressed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. This remarkable spumante was created in the traditional Champagne method, wherein the effervescence is obtained through a secondary fermentation in the bottle. It was aged in the bottle “sur lies” for at least 24 months.
This sparkling wine has a bright tangerine hue with fine bubbles. Aromas of dried apricots and savory herbs complement a palate of apricot preserves, dried tamarind, dried fig and tarragon, with a hint of orgeat. The finish is long and tapering.
