Villa Jolanda Halloween Sparkling
WHY WE LOVE IT
- A great sparkling wine from Piedmont, Italy that is fairly priced.
- Glera is a rather neutral grape variety which works extremely well for use in this sparkling Italian wine style.
Varietal Composition: 100% Glera
Elaboration: The sparkling process is carried out by using the “Charmat” long method. The grapes are picked manually and immediately pressed. The resulting must is filtered, refrigerated and fermented to create the base wine for the following sparkling process.
Tasting Notes: Scary good! Pleasantly sparkling and delightfully bright and juicy, this bottle of bubbly impresses with a bold bouquet of fruity aromas and yummy acidity. This versatile people-pleaser pairs so easily with food.
Villa Jolanda is crafted by Santero, a sparkling and still wine producer located in Piedmont, Italy in the southwest province of Cuneo. The winery was founded by the Santero brothers in 1958 and renovated in 1977 to process fruit from its five estate-owned vineyards and over 300 local winegrowers. It is best known for its large export market, unique packaging, and expansive portfolio of sweet wines. The impressive and extremely modern winery covers an area of 25,000 square meters with a total storage of 120,000 hectoliters.
The Langhe and Monferrato, declared a UNESCO world heritage site, represent the area of origin of the white muscat grapes which are used in the production of the wine. The characteristics of this wine are their special aromas and sweetness.
