A limited production wine from small lots of local and indigenous grapes, that reflects the distinctive terroir of the Cavazza family’s estate, and highlights the craftsmanship involved in hands-on winemaking. Only the best handpicked grapes from an elevation of 230 m (754 ft) are chosen to be dried naturally in wood crates, hand-squeezed and bottled to become this unique raisin Spumante.
Brilliant intense straw yellow with gold reflections. Long-lasting bead of fine pinpoint bubbles. Intensely fruity, featuring floral and tropical fruit nuances. Complex with overtones of ripe fruits. Velvety sweet sparkle balanced by bright, citrusy acidity and enlivened by the creamy bead. It offers tropical fruit notes of mango, coconut and pineapple, along with grapefruit candy, spice almond cream and biscuit. Lingering finish of mille-feuille with hints of vanilla.
