Definizione

Wines with bubbles that contain less than 2.5 atmospheres of carbon dioxide at sea level and 20°C. 1

Semi-sparkling wines have less carbon dioxide than regular sparkling wines. Their bubbles develop during a second fermentation in tanks, which is interrupted before the wines get fully sparkling. 2

Contesto

Introduced to the marketplace approximately eight years ago, these high-quality, semi-sparkling wines are made from some of the finest grapes found in the rich vineyards of Northern Italy. 3
