It is a subtle, salty and mineral wine. A little "rustic" bubble and revives the oxidative notes, very fine and creamy, acidity and drink of great flavor.
Cà del Vént, home of the wind, is the name of the winery and an apt description of it. Just North of Brescia, in the hills of Campian di Cellatica, a sunny southern exposition warms six hectares of vineyards, which are then cooled by the wind that’s always blowing here. An altitude of 300-400 meters and mainly chalky soils chisel the fruit.
