TASTING NOTES: Clean, dry, and a well-balanced sparkling wine. Ideal for hors dÍoeuvres, cocktails, seafood, and toasting for special occasions. A new Hopewell Valley Vineyards favorite. Serve chilled.
THE GRAPE: The Glera grape is one of the local white grape varieties present mainly in the Veneto region and is the base for the well known "Prosecco" sparkling wine. The grapes express different notes depending on the climatic conditions and the types of soil including scents of citrus fruit and green apple. For Moscato grape information please view the Bramante grape paragraph.
VINTNER'S NOTE: Another creative collaboration between the Neri and Botto family (see Spuma Rossa vintner's note). Our Spumante Secco is a sparkling wine that is made in a traditional Italian method called the Charmat Method. "Spumante" means sparkling wine and "secco" simply means dry in Italian. The re-fermentation process happens in a pressurized tank, instead of in a bottle, and then the wine is bottled in an isobaric machine to preserve carbonation.
