  • Other Information:The grapes for this wine come from the Dellemore vineyard (1 HA) that is characterized by its clay/limestone soils. Il Fric takes its color from a brief, six hour maceration before being separated from the skins to undergo its alcoholic fermentation. Subsequently, the wine is bottled and re-fermented in the bottle by adding grape must to create its sparkling quality. No sugars, yeasts, or sulfites are added and Il Fric is purposefully not disgorged; it is proposed as an integral sparkling wine. Elisabetta and Pasquale recommend inverting the bottle before opening in order to reintegrate the lees. Remarkably clean, dry, fruity, and delicious.
