Pignoletto frizzante DOCG


A vineyard, a barrel and over a year resting on the lees.
We wait for the rains to start in early September, we wait for the grape skins to turn from the green of chlorophyll to the brown showing the maturity of the tannins and then we harvest.
What’s important is not the acidity of the pulp, but the structure of the grape that brings elegance and a smokiness to the flavour during its period in the tank. The tank method in fact results in smooth bubbles that makes this a unique wine in the semi-sparkling scene of Emilia…
