Important and evolved nose, in the mouth it displaces for freshness and linearity. With no addition of expedition liqueur or dosages, in the classic Pas Operè style of the company, it is a bottle to be appreciated over time, capable of great evolution and fun.
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.
