The tiny bubbles bring out the white blossom, peach and acacia aromas of this playful wine, balanced by delicate minerality and fresh acidity. Perfect match with raw fish, cheese and light meats. Excellent as an aperitif. Stemmari Baci Vivaci - which means lively kisses - is the perfect name for such a refreshing and bubbly wine.

Vinification
The grapes are picked and selected during the second and third week of August. After soft pressing, the must is keep for 24 hours at 5°C to make it clear, and then fermented at 16-18°C for 7-10 days (base wine). To make it frizzy, fresh must is added to the base wine in order to start the natural fermentation process in autoclave at a temperature of 13-14°C for 8-10 days in order to allow the yeast to produce soft and elegant bubbles (Petit Charmat). Then when the wine has around 16g/L of residual sugar, is quickly chilled to stop the fermentation in order to keep a perfect balance between sweetness and freshness.
