L’inaspettato (the unespected) is back! 1997-2017: for the 20th harvest we produced “L’Inaspettato”, a red sparkling wine (spumante), with Croatina, Barbera, Vespolina and Uva rara for the remaining. Family method: short maceration, vinification only of free-draw juice, naturally re-fermented in bottled without addiction of sugar, unfiltered and not separated from yeasts, so it can evolve aging in bottle and preserve vitality and longevity.
Every bottle is unique and dependent from vintage climate; the final result is unespected: the wine could be delicate and gentle or a fury trying to come out entirely from the bottle! It is strongly recommended to open with extreme caution, keeping the bottle in a semi orizzontal position and preferably outdoors.
