Region

With a varied geography, many different micro-climates and a vast array of grape varieties and viticultural traditions, it is not surprising that Italy can offer a full range of sparkling wine in all styles and quality. The Spumante wines of Piedmont, centred around the town of Asti, are the best known; These are usually medium dry and sweet sparkling wines made by the tank method from Moscato grapes. The drier Prosecco Spumante is produced in the Veneto region from Glera grapes using the same tank or transfer method. Rose sparkling is made from Raboso grapes. The cooler Alpine regions are the source of Italy`s finer method traditional sparkling wines, often including blends of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. Tank fermented sparkling wines are produced in many other of Italy`s warmer regions.

Producer

Owned by the Sperone family, an ancient 17th century villa was built on top of a hill in Casalotto di Mombaruzzo, near Asti, in the heart of Monferrato, Piedmont. Tenute Neirano`s origins began when Antonio Sperone began making wine in 1911, and is now a wine-growing and wine-producing estate of great importance which combines rural tradition and modern technology. Among the white Piedmont classics of insuperable quality we find Gavi. The internationally awarded reds include Barolo and Barbera d’Asti superiore. The best-vintage red wines are aged in small barrels, located in underground cellars at controlled temperature. The company has been strengthened with the recent arrival of Francesca and Andrea Sperone, 4th generation of the family. With its 30 hectares of own vineyards, Tenute Neirano has become one of the finest Italian wine producers.
Tasting Notes
This traditional sparkling wine made from Pinot Noir is a pale pink in colour with a soft fruity and floral nose. The palate has a lovely, creamy mousse with pleasant redcurrant, strawberry and raspberry notes complemented by a fresh acidity.
