This product is currently sold out.
Weightless like no other sparkling wine we have encountered. If their Blanc de Morgex et la Salle is Italy's finest aperitif white wine, then this is the country's best sparkling starter. It is light filled, exhibiting white fruits, mountain herbs with fluffy guidance from the effortless bead. This is unlike any other sparkling wine and made in tiny volumes from a single, high altitude hectare of vines. Drink with chunks of Parmigiano-Reggiano.
"Medium straw with golden highlights. Pear, yellow plum and apple skin aromas are complemented by chamomile and mint. Gently sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors coat the palate, conveying a strongly zingy quality thanks to vibrant, harmonious acidity. A full-bodied, fresh, textbook rendition of a sparkling Blanc de Morgex et La Salle, with a long, bright finish. These sparklers, made with the Priè grape variety, are some of Italy’s best and least-known sparklers, made by secondary fermentation in the bottle." Ian d'Agata - Vinous
