Acquesi Rosato Brut, Cuvage Winery, Piedmont, Italy NV
Regular price £13.00
The Cuvage Winery is a new addition to the landscape of Piemonte. Founded in 2011 in the town of Acqui Terme, its sole focus is the production of sparkling wine.
Sparkling wine has been produced in Piemonte since 1895, and the launch of the Cuvage project is underpinned by a desire to bring these slightly forgotten sparkling examples to the fore once again. As a region, Piemonte is best known for the production of top-quality, age-worthy reds – such as Barolo and Barbaresco – along with perennial crowd pleaser, Gavi di Gavi.
Therefore, it can be easy to forget that it is a region that has a rich history in the world of sparkling wine, thanks to the fact that, in 1895, an Italian oenologist by the name of Federico Martinotti invented the world famous method of controlled fermentation for sparkling wines. In that moment, the sparkling wines of ‘Asti’ were born and Piemonte was put firmly on the map as a fizz trailblazer!
