An Italian rosé sparkling wine, produced in Oltrepo Pavese, an important wine-growing area. This sparkling wine is produced from a cuvée of Chardonnay (15%) and Pinot Noir (85%) vinified in pink, that is, with limited maceration, instead of the typical red winemaking. The pigments that give color to the wine are in fact present in the grape skin and not in the pulp.
The company, led by Valentina Blunda, is located in the warm and sunny Sicily, the largest island in southern Italy and in particular in the province of Trapani. An area with fertile soil and a mild climate even in winter.
