Casina Bric Sparkling Nebbiolo d’Alba Brut Rose 2018

Producer: Casina Bric

Orĩgo-Ginĩs: A story, a project of the territory and its vineyards under the appellation Nebbiolo d'Alba, which is Italy's third appellation for sparkling wine production. The project stems from the Latin 'Origo-Originis' "with reference to writings, works of art or other productions that are at the hands of the author, as opposed to what is a copy of it" (cit. Treccani)

Color: Delicate antique pink color, with a fine, lingering perlage
Aroma: Floral nose reminiscent of wild roses and showing fruit hinting at peach blossom.
Taste: Fresh and soft on the mouth, with the considerable complexity that is typical of the varietal at the same time. Nebbiolo’s drinkability and verve unquestionably make this a unique bubbly.

Food Matching: Perfect as an aperitif, a very versatile wine that compliments well finger-food, fish and sea-food, spicy curries, strawberries & cream. It is particularly refreshing in the warmer months of the year
Vinification: In pressure tanks (Martinotti method), sur lies for 12 to 18 months to ensure unconditional quality and finesse in keeping with Nebbiolo.
Aging: Subsequent maturation in bottle for 6-12 months prior to the wine’s release.
