AGEING: After fermentation the first ageing takes place on its lees, in oak barrels. After about a year the wine is placed in bottles with crown caps. The bottles are then stacked in the cellar at 14-18°C, and the second fermentation begins. The product reamins on the yeasts for at least 24 months, before the dégorgément and marketing. Wine bottled after three years from the harvest.

In the mouth it’s full, with good intensity, the aftertaste is long and persistent, it reminds to notes of dried fruit, plums and blackberries.

CURIOSITY: We paid homage to the patriarch of the Scagliola family who first had the passion to offer the first bottles. Wine from historical flavor, being the area highly evoked for classic sparkling wines full of character.
