Bubbles have always been associated with conviviality and the celebration of great occasions. Inevitable to
toast the new year or to celebrate an important milestone, it is the effervescence of the perlage that makes
these wines so much loved, as lively as the spirit that surrounds this kind of event. Although it can be said
that the bubble looks good on a little bit of everything and is suitable for every moment, it must be pointed
out that there are actually many bubbles and they are all different from each other. The best known is
certainly the one obtained with the Champenoise method which, precisely in the French region of the same
name, gives life to the famous bubble obtained from Chardonnay, Pinot Nero and Pinot Meunier. On Italian
soil, however, alternatives are not lacking and with the same method, which we take the name of Classic
Method, we obtain wines whose name changes according to the production area. Trento Doc in TrentinoAlto Adige, Franciacorta and Oltrepò Pavese in Lombardy, Alta Langa in Piedmont and so on. The vines used
are the French classics, but there are exceptions, with Spumanti Metodo Classico which today are obtained
from the most unusual vines and with unusual aging methods. Here is our selection.
