Located in a splendid position, in the locality of Pilandro, a few steps from Desenzano del Garda, La Rifra is a family-run winery present in the area since the seventies, which has always shown great attention to quality, from the methods of cultivation of grapes up to the production of wines.
La Rifra is an agricultural company that deals with viticulture and wine production, dedicating itself in particular to the enhancement of the territory and the production of wines.
For the cultivation of the vineyards, the company does not use herbicides, works according to the methods established by European legislation, and strictly adheres to the agri-environmental measure 10 for sustainability and respect for the environment.
Sourced from vines over 40 years old, at 70-80 meters above sea level and planted at a density of 3600-4000 plants per hectare. The characteristic composition of the soil, clayey and rich in mineral salts, the mild climate and the proximity of the lake, contribute to obtaining a high quality wine production.
Produced with 100% Trebbiano di Lugana. Manually harvested and then carefully selected bunches and vinified using the traditional method. This sparkling is made in very limited quantities, due to the long vinification and fermentation process required. The result is a sparkling wine of high quality, fresh and inviting, suitable to satisfy even an audience of connoisseurs and admirers of the best Italian wines.
A fine and persistent mousse in the glass with fresh floral and fruity notes, reminiscent of yellow apple, pear and blossom on the nose. This combined with a hint of minerality makes for a glorious sparkling wine from this region without the sweetness of most Italian sparkling wines.
Perfect aperitif, on its own or accompanied with salmon sashimi.
Drink in its youth but could be carefully cellared for up to 5 years.
