SOIL AND WEATHER

The soil is rocky and very well chemically balanced. The weather is particularly cool and aerated, ideal to preserve the scent and the acidity of the product.

peculiarity of the product to the maximum. After cleaning the wine, it starts the sparkling wine production process in autoclave preparation.
