Pet'Golò

Description

Pet'Golò is a PET-NAT (Pétillant Naturel), or naturally sparkling rosé wine. Made according to the "méthode ancestrale", fermentation is allowed to continue in bottle with absolutely no additions, no sugar and no sulfites, giving rise to delicate bubbles and a slight opaque unfiltered appearance. The resulting wine is all natural, just pure fruit, with delicious bubbles and a lovely antique rose color!

Primary fermentation then continues in the bottle thus giving the wine its small bubbles and effervescence, with a natural deposit of the lees.
