After fermentation and aging in stainless steel fermentation Charmat method. Residual sugar level 10 gr/lt.
Tasting notes. Pale straw-yellow in colour, enhanced by a crystalclear, crisp, lingering beading that brings out the exquisitely-subtle pear, citrus, white-fleshed fruit and white-petaled flowers overtones to the full.
Marvellously fruity, pleasantly-dry and superbly fresh on the palate, with a perfectly-balanced texture which combines gentle acidity and a lively, creamy fizziness.

Food and wine pairing. Extremely versatile, all-course wine, perfect in any convivial situation. Superb as aperitif, whenever raising glasses for a toast. The Spumante Brut version is especially suitable with appetizers, raw fish starters and steamed seafood. Unforgettable when paired to chocolate cakes and apple pies.
