From the importer-
This saline-packed sparkling reminded Alessandra so much her father, who grew up basking in the salty and misty air of the port city of Bari, that she named this cuvée after him. A powerhouse of a zero/zero Franciacorta that brings complexity, depth, and a lingering finish. This mineral-driven wine also evokes notes of bruised fruit and a lightly oxidative quality.
From clay and limestone soil and a base 2015 harvest, 15 days in cement tanks, then rested in barrique before tirage and bottling. Hand harvested, indigenous yeast, unfined, unfiltered, no added sulfur, and zero dosage.
The current generation is Alessandra Divella, and the domain is just 2 hectares!
