Comment of the winemaker
This is one of my real “gems”. Created from my own grapes grown on the high hills of Tortona, the grapes are harvested at just the right time to ensure the typically lively, fruity, fresh-flavoured rounded palate, making it a wonderful sparkling wine. Serve as the perfect ending to a meal, topping off desserts and fruit or a superb, unusual aperitif.
