Villa Sparina Brut (750ml)
The Villa Sparina vineyards and winery were founded by the Moccagatta family in the 1970’s in Monterotondo, Piedmont, the heart of the Gavi DOCG. Villa Sparina comprises 100 hectares of land, 70 of which are cultivated with local grapes for the production of Gavi and Barbera wines. The estate produces a few wines from the Cortese grape; a Gavi di Gavi and a cru bottling from Monterotondo. The terroir exalts the acid component, savory and mineral features of the grape and contributes to the ageability of these wines.
Peach and brioche on the nose and palate. Combines stone fruit freshness with yeasty and buttery notes. This traditional method sparkling wine is an excellent alternative to Champagne; it is well balanced, full bodied with a round pleasing texture.
Made from mainly Cortese grapes sourced from the municipality of Gavi, Piemonte. The grapes are hand harvested in September, softly crushed and undergo a three week primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Second fermentation in bottle fermentation and 30 months ageing on the lees before disgorging.
