Taste: Full-bodied, generous and of significant structure to the palate, it is very persistent, soft, refined and elegant.

Producer: Cà del Vént is a small, independent, artisanal, family-owned, boutique winery set in Cellatica at the eastern border of Franciacorta, Lombardy - Italy. The estate covers only 6 hectares, and the vineyards enjoy a west-facing position on top of the Campiani hills (350/400m a.s.l.) with relatively steep slopes, a unique windy and dry microclimate (the name Cà del Vént means the “house of wind”). The reduced 1kg per vine production guaranteed outstanding quality and perfectly healthy grapes.
