The Vernaccia Dolce, red sparkling wine, is obtained uniquely by the autochthonous Vernaccia Nera vineyards; the 50% is composed by dried grapes and the remaining 50% of fresh pressed grapes. Both parts of grapes are fermented separately, then joined together directly in the autoclave and left fermenting. Thanks to this process carbon dioxide naturally developed by fermentation, it maintains aromas, scents and natural sugar.
The Vernaccia Dolce is a meditation wine to be consumed with cakes, biscuits with almonds, cantucci and typical “ciambelline” prepared with the same Vernaccia nera. It is a young wine, not suited for aging.
