Marche Bianco Frizzante 'Il Pestifero' Pét-Nat - Organic

  • 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. After primary fermentation in stainless steel tank, the wine is bottled with residual sugar and undergoes a natural secondary fermentation in bottle. The wine is released after 2 months, without disgorgement or filtration.

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!
