When we talk about our region, no one really ever thinks of it as a Spumante producing region. Incredibly, instead, it is such a place. Our spumante tradition was born way before the Franciacorta production in the 70s in the town of Cupramontana where there were at the time twenty-five spumante-producing companies. But more surprisingly is the news that the first spumante in the world seems to have been born right here in this region, thanks to Francesco Scacchi of Fabriano in 1650, at least thirty years ahead of the French monk Dom Perignon in the abbey of Hautevillers. Our company has paid homage to the centuries-old tradition of sparkling wines in the region by producing two beautiful sparkling wines made from Sangiovese and Passerina. Our Rosé Brut has an intense pink color, revealing on the nose delicate notes of red fruits. The palate is fresh and clean, with a delicate slightly acidic note.
