Caposaldo presents soft and elegant with lively bubbles, this sweet sparkling wine has aromas and flavors of berries, apricots, sage and rose petals. The red Merlot and white Moscato grapes that combine to make this pink wine grow on the cool hilltops of northern Italy’s Veneto and Lombardy regions, where the warm daytime sun contrasting with cool night air helps the grapes to retain their distinctive aromas. The fruit is handpicked, and after a temperature-controlled fermentation the wine is sweetened with unfermented grape juice and undergoes a natural second fermentation in autoclave, resulting in a fine, persistent effervescence.
Caposaldo blends a handcrafted approach to winemaking with cutting-edge quality standards and techniques, so that it stands as a benchmark of iconic Italian wines. The fruit for each Caposaldo wine is hand harvested from prime growing areas in the classic Italian wine regions of Tuscany, the Veneto and Lombardy. Modern scientific techniques are used in the cellar, including cold temperature stainless steel fermentations and judicious use of oak, resulting in a pure expression of each wine type.
