Valdobbiadene Prosecco D.O.C.G. Frizzante Ruralia
Lightly sparkling white wine, made from Glera grapes according to the Charmat method. The cold maceration gives this wine a unique structure.
Characterised by a lower level of sparkle, this light and perfumed wine suits all occasions. The binding of the cap with the string brings back to the time when the rural tradition wanted this cork for sparkling wines. That’s why we called it “Ruralia”.
