“This sparkling wine, whose name reminds us of nature’s mysterious and beautiful protective virgins, comes from carefully selected grapes and is made using the ancestral method of refermentation in the bottle.
Thus, in “Ninfa del Tegolato,” thanks to this ancient winemaking technique, the naturalness lost with other methods is preserved. The product obtained is vibrant and delicious, with complex and completely unique organoleptic characteristics.
A high quality wine, ideal for any time of celebration and for all occasions where joy is an essential ingredient.”

The grapes are hand-picked as soon as they reach full ripeness. The next day, the winemaker drains the must after which fermentation continues. This entire process occurs naturally without temperature control.
A little before fermentation is complete, the wine is bottled so that fermentation completes in the bottle.
