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.
This refreshing white wine is a blend of Grillo and Carricante. Light bodied and crisp, this wine displays aromas and flavors of stone fruit and melon.
The name of this wine comes from the originally spoken Sicilian term ‘feud’oro’ which loosely translates to ‘golden feud’. The name represents the ancient feuds (during medieval times) to control the land. Over time, the use of the adjective "d'oro" became restricted to the area of Marsala (in western Sicily), so we now simply say 'feud'o'.
Tifeo Rosso is a translucent ruby which borders on garnet red. Subtle aromas of cherry and raspberry mix with bolder scents of tobacco, brushwood, leather, and dark chocolate, finishing with a provocative mineral freshness.SHOP NOW

We find ourselves reaching for the next bottle of Gambino Spumante much more often than other bubbles in our wine collection.
