VINO FRIZZANTE ROSE’
This project was born out of the need for carefree people. The idea is to produce a wine that is not necessarily gastronomic but a wine that is capable of keeping us company. We needed a light and pleasant wine, so it was natural to think of a sparkling wine obtained by vinifying the grapes in the most natural way possible, a Pet Nat (abbreviation of Pétillant Naturel). An organic wine with bubbles obtained by refermenting it in the bottle through its frozen must.
