We have the sparkling process of Nebbiolo in our DNA: the first attempts to produce “bubbles” date back to the Seventies. New York, 1984: a bottle of Brut Rosé ranks first in a review dedicated to the classic Italian method. Reported by both the New York Times and the Daily News: it is the beginning of a fascinating adventure.Over the years, with pride, we have enriched this production which today boasts two vintage rosés produced from Chiavennasca and a small percentage of Pignola and Rossola.Cuvée Maria Vittoria, a rosé nature that ages on the lees for at least 60 months, is the pride of our company.
