VINEYARDS: Pinot Nero arrive in Italy thanks to the Count Carlo Vistarino in 1.850 who, some years later, started the production of the Italian Metodo Classico Brut. As a tribute of this event we produce the 1865. It is the flagship Vistarino sparkling that includes the long experience of our winery in both Pinot NoirVINEYARDS and Sparkling process. The grapes are grown in a special vineyard of Rocca de’ Giorgi estate. Finally the wine spend at least 60 months in bottle making a slow fermentation with an exchange and a “mélange” of yeast and residual sugars.
History, wisdom, skill and, furthermore, complexity and strength are the elements that make this wine so appealing: Just enjoy the amazing ensemble!
