Liboll Spumante NV, Extra Dry, San Marzano, Puglia, Italy
Delightfully fresh and lively spumante, white peach flavours great aperitif.
Blend - 80% Chardonnay, 10% Bombino, 10% Minutolo. White native grapes gently pressed whole, using only the first-pressed must (55%) which afterwards ferments at low temperatures. The resulting wine is further processed in a pressurised tank using the “Charmat” method. After the second fermentation it remains in the pressurised tank on its own yeasts for about a month.
Producer - In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish ‘Cantine San Marzano’. Through the decades this cooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1,200 vine growers. Using modern & technologically advanced vinification techniques they produce elegant wines that pay homage to the ancient Apulian wine traditions. The fusion of time honoured tradition, passion & contemporary techniques, enables this winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal & regional characteristics while reflecting the local terroir.
