Sensorial description: :
Bright and lively wine. Golden hues with a fine, long-lasting perlage. It expresses all the aromas typical of Greco di Tufo, like delicate notes of ripe yellow fruits, citrus smell and a slight mineral touch with hints of white flowers. Finally, a delicate smell of almonds and bread crust.
Full-bodied, it has the freshness and zestiness of Greco di Tufo, all balanced with the subtle creaminess given by the refermentation process.
An intense and persistent sip.
Food combination: Great as an aperitiv; main courses with seafood, fish dishes are perfect pairings.
Serving temperature: 8 – 10° C
Peculiarity: “1930” is our newest sparkling wine, and it now accompanies our historic Classic Method Anni Venti.
1930 was the birth year of Filippo di Somma, Principe del Colle, son of Maria di Marzo and manager of the winery for more than 30 years until he passed away in October 2019. This wine is dedicated to him, in memory of his commitment in keeping alive a heritage that dates back to 1647.
