Metodo Classico Brut

Though the varietal is principally a red wine grape, it can be crushed in a press without skin contact and vinified as a white wine. In Scacciadiavoli Brut Metodo Classico* the characteristics of the varietal reveal themselves in a new form: fresh and delicate aromas balanced by the typical tannin, giving this sparkling wine a unique structure and harmony.

Appellation: Vino Spumante Brut Metodo Classico, IGT

Type: White, sparkling

Blend: 85% Sagrantino, 15% Chardonnay

*Metodo Classico (the Classic or Traditional Method) refers to the natural second fermentation that takes place in the bottle. This method is the same used in producing sparkling wines in the Champagne region of France.
