A rigorously vintage wine produced in the Alta Langha area of Piedmont, this elegant spumante is made out of hand selected grapes from vineyards situated at an altitude of 480m above sea level. The grapes are gently pressed and fermented with the Traditional Method: the first time in temperature controlled barrels, and the second time in bottles for 1 month. The wine is then left to age for an additional 30 to 40 months.
Roberto Garbarino runs a tiny cantina (winery) in Neviglie, a small town near Barbaresco. His Alta Langa is considered one of the very best Traditional Method sparkling wine in the entire region. This humble but ambitious guy is fast becoming a real local legend!!
