The famous, centuries-old Nerello Mascalese grapes are processed into a sparkling white wine, appealing in the glass and a true example of a clear style. The sparkling process is completed using the “blanc de noirs” method to bring out the sensory characteristics of the Nerello Mascalese grapes. After a light pressing of the grapes still attached to the stalks, vinification occurs inside the winery contained within the typical Etna baglio (old farmhouse) dating back to the 17th century.
Characteristics: distinguished by a white, intense mousse and exuberant bead that make it a sparkling wine of rare intensity. The elegance of Mount Etna’s wines is faithfully interpreted by Gaudensius, which represents a unique and evolving land at the highest level.

Perlage: Numerous tiny bubbles, persistent, fine and elegant.
Bouquet: Clear, very fine and complex, with prevailing scents of berries, crusty bread, aniseed and mineral hints.
Flavour: Complex, well-bodied yet very fine. Lingering, sapid, and mineral with pleasant aftertaste of currants and almonds.
