Pensiero is a Blanc de Blancs made from Chardonnay grapes. Thought fills the nose and mouth with an irresistible, punctuated, punctilious crackle of very fine bubbles. The right, perfect, natural acidity and sapidity govern the creamy intensity of the sip, for complete pleasures without gaps. Distinctive bubble.
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.
