Marche Bianco Frizzante 'Il Pestifero' Pét-Nat

  • Tenuta di Tavignano
  • Marche, Italy

Method & Production

Il Pestifero, the ‘naughty boy’ Pét-Nat, is part of Tavignano’s ‘I Love Monsters’ line devoted to rediscovering older, traditional winemaking methods through modern technologies. The grapes are hand harvested with only the top quality selected, before primary vinification at a controlled temperature. The wine is bottled with residual sugar and undergoes a natural second fermentation in bottle for a period of two months. It is not disgorged or filtered. 

Tasting notes

Bright, straw yellow with aromas of floral, citrus, and herbs. The Pét-Nat is dry with fine, gentle bubbles that enhance the acidity. With a low alcohol content, it is pleasant and easy to drink, allowing the Verdicchio grapes to shine.

Food matching

Great as an aperitif! But, also, a perfect match for appetizers, specifically tempura, ethnic inspired, or spicy. Yet, versatile enough to pair with sushi or sashimi as well as street food!
