Spumante Extra Brut 'Farfalla' (750 ml.) - Ballabio

'Farfalla' Extra Brut represents the essence of the Ballabio style. Its balance comes from the Pinot Noir grapes, coming from proprietary vineyards with a predominantly limestone-clayey structure set on hilly sides between 300 and 500 meters above sea level. After a long aging in the bottle it is a synthesis of elegance, freshness and complexity. Its balance comes from Pinot Noir grapes, clone 386, coming from property vineyards with a predominantly calcareous-clayey structure set on hilly sides between 300 and 500 meters above sea level. The bouquet is centered on fruity and citrus tones with accents of bread crust and pastry. The taste is fresh and refined, smooth and inviting, enlivened by a creamy and persistent foam.

THE COMPANY

If we talk about Oltrepò Pavese, a land with a well-known sparkling wine tradition, it is impossible not to mention the Ballabio winery, founded over a century ago, exactly in 1905, by Angelo Ballabio, a name now synonymous with great quality enology. With 100 thousand bottles produced per year, the Casteggio company currently belongs to Filippo Nevelli and his son Mattia, who, after having equipped the cellar with the most modern technologies, have decidedly embarked on the path of sparkling the Ballabio company in an undisputed point of reference for what concerns the production of bubbles in the Pavia area. The vineyard land of the company extends for about fifty hectares, with a rich and varied subsoil, due to the changes in the different geological eras, which have contributed to its current conformation. The only grape variety grown is Pinot Noir, a grape typically used in the production of high-class Classic Method sparkling wines. Not an easy grape, Pinot Noir is best expressed in these lands rich in limestone sediments. The only labels produced by the Ballabio company are therefore the sparkling ones, which enjoy elegance and structure, olfactory breadth and gustatory clarity; celebrated and loved by connoisseurs. "Farfalla" is the spearhead of the cellar, an excellent expression of the best of the Oltrepò area, both in the classic Extra Brut version and in the refined Zero Dosage.
