Sweet Red Sparkling

The grapes grow on the cool hilltops of northern Italy's Lombardy region, where the northern-lying Alps shield the low-yielding hillside vineyards from harsh weather and the 20-year-old vines benefit from a superb blend of soils. During harvest, the fruit is carefully handpicked.

TASTING NOTE

This lightly sweet wine delivers intense floral and red berry aromas and flavors, and fresh, vivacious bubbles.
