Vedova Nera

Barbera and Merlot Rosè, pet-nat- ancient method


“The Widows” are Italy. Fresh, sincere, drinkable and gastronomic, the tradition that enhances and tells us about who we are.

Naturally refermented wine in the bottle, like those of our grandparents who “if there is no bubble, it is not wine”, but with the extreme cleanliness of the aromas.

Barbera and Merlot, but the same light and carefree approach to life: and greedy, because there is no bottle of wine without bread, salami and cheese.

The refermentation in the bottle creates the sparkling wine in the bottle itself, thanks to a continuous and perpetual development, which refines year by year, constantly evolving.
