Spumante Metodo Classico MAsSIM

Cooler vintages treat us to perfect grapes for this Classic Method sparkling wine called MasSìm, merging the names of the owners’ two sons, Marco and Simone.
The elegant, fresher and fruitier qualities of the Chardonnay soften the structure and austerity that come from the Nebbiolo, creating a perfect blend.

An intense mousse, straw yellow colour and persistent, fine perlage make a perfect introduction to the tasting of the wine.
Then elegant, fruity aromas are joined by the typical overtones conjuring up breadcrusts and nuts.
Finally comes the dry fullness of the taste, with its lovely personality and long aromatic finish.
This is the perfect wine for proposing a toast on big occasions, but it is also recommended of course as an aperitif or for serving with hors-d’oeuvres.
