Technical notes

Vinification: the wine-making process is “off the skins”, with direct pressing of the grapes and immediate separation of the must from the skins, followed by static clarification and fermentation at a controlled temperature (16-18°C). The wine thus
obtained, stored for a few months in temperature-controlled tanks, is moved to an autoclave where, after the addition of sugar, it undergoes a second fermentation called “presa di spuma”, which will give the sparkling wine its characteristic effervescence.

Ageing:each single grape is vinified separately and the blend is made only in the spring following the harvest, thus ensuring that besides the differences that might between the different vintages, the characteristics of the product remain virtually intact.

Tasting notes

“Esordio” is a sparkling wine with a marked personality, a fine, persistent mousse and an abundant perlage. Straw-yellow with an intense nose of citrus, sage and tropical fruits, it has a fresh, supple taste, which is well-balanced, modern and highly inviting.


Excellent as an aperitif, its limited alcohol makes it perfect with snacks, hors-d’oeuvres and light meals, and, surprising though it may seem, a really fine match for pizza and light snacks. It is the classic young wine for young people, ideal for drinking with friends.
