Bretta Rossa

Cuvée Leonora Rosé

This wine was born as a tribute from the owner and producer Giuseppe Ravasini to his wife Leonora.
It was also born with the intention to rediscover the past tradition of the Spumante wine in Piedmont when in the 19th century in Tagliolo Monferrato and other regions in Piedmont, Spumante wine was produced with the Pinot Nero grape together with other important wines.

COMPOSITION OF THE CUVÉE: 100% Pinot Nero
