Spumante - Spumante Wine in Metodo Classico Produced and processed by the Gambino family winery by siblings Filadelfo, Francesco Antonio, and Maria Grazia in Linguaglossa, Italy. This product is obtained from a careful selection of Nerello Mascalese grapes planted on Etna at 800 meters above sea level, with a gentle pressing. After an initial fermentation, the wine is bottled for a second fermentation. It then matures in the dark at a temperature of 15 degrees Celsius for over 48 months “sur lies” (on yeast remains). The “remuages sur les pupitres” accompanies aging until the bottle is placed upside down for disgorgement of the sediment, and 6 - 9 months after disgorgement, a fine perlage (stream of bubbles) frees itself in the wine glass.

Made from 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes! Named after the Mascali area in Carania where the grape is thought to have originated, the Nerello Mascalese grape grows in the cool, high altitudes of the active volcano Mt. Etna. Grown primarily on the northeastern side of Sicily, this red grape contains a rustic black volcanic earthy note, and medium weight fine-grained tannins.
