Made with native grape Carricante, this lovely sparkler offers heady scents of Spanish broom, ripe orchard fruit and Mediterranean scrub. On the fresh, savory palate, notes of tangerine and lemon drop underscore yellow apple and ripe pear set against a refined persistent perlage. Tangy acidity lifts the rich flavors.
