Metodo Classico 2018
With a brilliant yellow straw color, the wine shows its fine and persistent perlage while floral aromas and hints of white peach and apple come forward. On the palate, the tight bubbles have a creamy mouth feel accompanied by a beautiful acidity and elegance, finishing with salinity and minerality.
Why we like it
Using a small plot with only 1,000 Pinot Bianco vines, Tenuta Marino had the vision to craft a limited-edition sparkling wine in the classic Champagne method. Using the Pinot Bianco grape is not customary to Le Marche, growing primarily in cooler northern climates, but we like the dry and acidic characteristics that the grape provides when grown in our warmer climate. The resulting 1,000 bottles show the purity of the Pinot Bianco grape used in an unconventional way.
