Mary Taylor - Bianco Frizzante Sofia Brescia NV - 750 ml 11%
Citrus, Asian pear, Acacia honey, Jasmine, and a touch of sea salt all grace the nose and palate of this charming frizzante. This white wine is absolutely lovely and fresh, the ‘frizzante’ element of the wine expresses itself as a light spritz in the glass.
Sofia Brescia is a name given to honor to the previous generation of wine growers, many of who were women that have been forgotten by historical naming conventions.
60% Glera, 40% Garganega
Frizzante wine is a lower pressure than Spumante. The bubbles are a result of the addition of tirage – in this case 15-25 g/l concentrated grape must is added as part of the liqueur d’expedition before secondary fermentation. From the foothills of the Alps on the east side of the province of Vicenza, vineyards planted upwards of 30 years ago bear fruit of the Glera and Garganega grapes.
