A different approach to the secondary refermentation of local indigenous grapes yields Radicale, a bottle-fermented Brut style classic-method sparkling wine from 100% glera grapes that is released without any preceding disgorgement, so that absolutely no SO2 is added.
Straw yellow in appearance, it exhibits an elegant bead of tiny bubbles. The classic glera aromas of apple and pear are well in evidence, but the bouquet is enriched with fragrances of lavender,mulberry, kumquat, and hazelnut as well. On the palate, it is savoury, dry, log-lingering, and lush.
A superb aperitif wine, Radicale partners wonderfully with antipasti and risottos, and try it with roast capon. Store upside down in a cool, dark place, even for some years. Do not store in the refrigerator.
