While Champagne is the most famous wine region making wine in the "Traditional Method," it is by no means the only one! Cava from Spain, some Sekt from Germany, many sparkling wines from California, and Franciacorta in Italy, are some of the most well-known alternatives. However, this wine is a rarity from the Marche region in central-eastern Italy. Made from Verdicchio, one if Italy's dynamic, ageable, noble white grape varieties, this vintage bottling sees at least 18 months on the lees - longer than the regulations for base-level Champagne. !00% estate fruit from a family-owned property, this is a small production wine from a selective property.

This bone dry (extra-brut) wine manifests the character of Verdicchio - almond blossom, lemon zest, and salinity, while also displaying a hint of biscuity, croissant-dough yeastiness that we love about wines made in the traditional method. The wine maintains the signature laser-like acidity of the grape, which makes it a perfect pairing for briny, raw seafood like oysters, but also brightens up richer preparations with lobster, crab, scallops, and cream-based dishes.
