Broglia
La Meirana Sparkling Gavi DOCG
Piemonte

This wine comes from Broglia’s youngest vineyards and is bottled earlier than the rest of their wines in order to preserve its distinguishable youth and freshness. It has a courteous “petillant”, obtained with a light second fermentation in autoclaves that emphasizes its fragrance, harmony and freshness.
