Etna Doc Spumante

A complex sparkling wine, with a distinct minerality


The Etna DOC Spumante Metodo Classico Cottanera has a brilliant straw-yellow color. The nose welcomes us with hints of white flowers accompanied by light citrus notes. The palate it is full, fresh and vibrant while showing a good structure and complexity. A brut with a fine and persistent perlage and a distinct minerality.
