Product Description

Fruity with a scent of peach, fresh and well balanced. A pure, rich sparkling wine with a full body and round texture. Flavorful. Lots of character and beauty.

Brand Description

The Villa Sparina estate was purchased by the Moccagatta family in the late 1970s long before anyone could imagine how popular Italian white wine would become in the decades to follow. Villa Sparina's vineyards stretch over 70 hectares in the northern section of the Gavi appellation where the clay marl soils alternate with diluvial and gravelly soils, ideal to produce richly flavored white wines with immense aging potential. Lying at altitudes between 250-300 meters a.s.l., the growing sites benefit from the maritime influence of the Mediterranean, about an hour's drive by car. The winery vinifies its Cortese grapes in a variety of styles, including a lighter-style expression of Cortese blend from vineyards approximately 30 years in age; the richer, age-worthy Gavi Monterotondo from 40-year-old vines; and a sparkling wine aged on its lees for 30 months. The winery also grows and vinifies Barbera grapes, including a fresher style, stainless-steel aged 100 percent Barbera and a richer barrique-aged cru known as Rivalta, also 100 percent Barbera. The winery is also known for its distinctive bottle shape. It was inspired by an old bottle that was discovered in the estate's historic cellar.

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
