Jacopo Stigliano

Valsamoggia, Emilia-Romagna



We can think of few fonder memories of discovering a wine than this, which was opened for aperitivo to mark the beginning of the picnic of all picnics in Jacopo’s vineyard last spring. This beautiful sparkling wine is a blend of Trebbiano, Albana, Grechetto and more from an abandoned old vineyard, which spent just a day on skins, before being pressed to vats until the following spring. A little must from the same harvest was added to bring about a second fermentation in the bottle and the wine has been resting on its lees ever since. Brilliant, straw yellow in the glass, it draws you in with gentle notes of white flowers, citrus and stones, whilst the palate is whistle clean, with every little detail in place. One of the best examples of the genre we have tried.
