"Grower-driven, vintage-dated, pure and fresh, Secco Italian Bubbles defines the dolce vita. Growing up in Rome, Italy, Ginevra and Olivia Casa always had an infatuation for Prosecco. In 2010, after the change in laws pertaining to Prosecco production, the Casa sisters jumped on the opportunity to champion both the noble varietals and the growers of Chardonnay and created a new category of sparkling wine called Secco Italian Bubbles.

Enter Charles Smith, Washington states rock star winemaker and fellow lover of Prosecco. Who can resist a big fat glass of cold Italian bubbles? said Smith. This year, Charles and the Casa sisters decided to increase production and add Moscato and Manzoni Moscato to the current Secco lineup with Bianco and Rose. As Ginevra Casa advises, Drink Secco to celebrate every day life!

Blend and Type: 100% Moscato Bianco, Frizzante

Tasting Notes: White peach, lychee and jasmine in the aroma and on the palate. This wine is so flavorful, one glass is never enough!

Vineyards: The vineyards are located entirely within the Colli Eugani DOC. The soil is a mix of volcanic basalt and sedimentary soils with clay, stone and rocks. Sourced from the superior and ancient Moscato Bianco clone grown on hillsides in the villages Communi di Vo, Rovolon and Teolo.

Serve cold and frequently, either on its own or as a component to a seductive Bellini or Mimosa base" ~ Winery notes
