”Luigi” Bianco Pét-Nat
Vino Frizzante Bianco Roero
This Pét-Nat is a playful experiment with the major white grape of the Roero region, Arneis. A popular style worldwide, Pét-Nat is a French term for petillant naturel, which means a naturally sparkling wine. Unlike Champagne, there is just one fermentation that finishes in the bottle leaving mild carbonation and often times, natural sediment. The wine is energetic and fresh with lime and lemon citrus, fresh cut wildflowers, and peach pit.
POINTS OF INTEREST
The label says everything about this wine. A colorful fish swimming against-the-grain, listening to her own music. The Pét-Nat style can range drastically, like any wine category. Some are funky, some have been disgorged to remove sediment, while others just have different expressions based off of the region or grape. Wild yeast fermentation from organically farmed, estate vineyards in the Roero, give this wine a fresh new sound for your palate!
