Description:

Milazzo Riserva V38AG is a symbolic name.

This is in fact the first bottler code that the Autorithy attributed to our winery together with the authorization to bottle wines.

A sparkling wine where the strength of Inzolia emerges, its Mediterranean style and its ability to evolve in complex and interesting way over time, complemented by the extreme elegance of  the Milazzo Chardonnay .

THE VINE’S SELECTION

The plants of Inzolia over 20 years of age are grown in deep limestone matrix soils of the Milici area and are harvested at the beginning of  September and matured in stainless steel vats.

The Chardonnay selected for this cuvée also comes from the soils of the Milici area, from the plants trained with pergola system with over thirty years of age.

The grapes harvested in early August partly fermented in second-passage French oak barriques.

SENSORY PROFILE

A bright sparkling wine, with an intense yellow color, accompanied by a very fine and persistent pérlage. It shows hints of exotic fruit that melt in the bread crust. Silky, soft and particularly elegant on the palate.
