Made from 100% Albarossa grapes, the red grapes are gently pressed and the fermentation is carried out as though it were a white wine using natural yeasts. albarssa is a little known local red variety which adds a certain character to this sparkling rose. The grapes are grown at an altitude of 300 metres and organically cultivated. Only 7,000 bottles are produced each year.
