description: This is a Pét-Nat Prosecco.
Pét-Nat is short for Pétillant Naturel (French for Naturally Sparkling).
It is the same vinification method as "Methode Ancestrale" used in Bugey Cerdon.
The wine is bottled before the end of the first alcoholic fermentation. Unlike Champagne method (in which the base wine completes his first fermentation in tank and only the secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle adding sugar and yeast also known as liqueur de tirage, which will requires the wine to be disgorged), Pét-Nat method doesn't imply the wine will be filtered or disgorged upon fermentation.
This gives Pét-Nat its light and fizzy mouthfeel, generally with a little sweetness and low alcohol. Most of the times, bottles are slightly cloudy from the presence of lees.
The wine is vibrant with complex lemon citrus, pear and verbena. It finishes dry with delicate yeasty notes.
Alcohol 11,0% vol.
Acidity 5,1 g/l.

"Showing orchard fruit aromas, this wine offers exuberant fruit with light lemon and herbal notes. It offers bright acidity and finishes complete dry. One of the best Pet-Nats we’ve had this year. Made of 95% Glera, this is a sparkling wine made the ancestrale method where the wine is bottled before the end of fermentation, resulting in dissolved carbon dioxide that lends a light sparkling quality to the wine."

"Made using the methode ancestrale where the wine is bottled prior to the end of fermentation, with fermentation continuing in bottle, thereby creating a lightly effervescent wine. The Rebuli In Fondo shows an exuberant green apple nose and apple and pear flavors with lemon and thyme notes on a lightly fizzy palate. It has bright acidity and finishes with good fruity length and very dry (0 g/l RS). This is an unfussy, festive wine for consuming with casual fare. Light in alcohol, too. Picked by hand, softly pressed."
