Tasting Notes ~ Saltare spends a minimum of 18 months on the lees, with no added sugar or sulphur when it is disgorged. The dates of bottling and disgorgement are printed on each label. The wine has aromas of sliced grapefruit and white flowers that introduce the freshness of the wine, accompanied by brioche and biscuity notes. There are fresh lemon, strawberry, gooseberry, lime zest and honey-cake on the palate, with a delicate texture of oyster shells that reflects the chalky origins of the vines. The fine and consistent mousse leads to a complex, refreshing finish. Since no dosage is added when the wine is disgorged, it is a naturally dry and zesty sparkling wine. The Brut Nature is comprised of 50-60% Chardonnay and 40-50% Pinot Noir. Less then 400 cases produced.
