Here the climatic features of the hills and the soil morphology combine with the benefits of a typically Mediterranean climate with mild summers and mild winters; A constant and light breeze, which favors the day-night thermal excursion and a good ventilation of the plants. The area is characterized by a particular concentration of morphologically diverse soils: from dark clays to white limestone; the ideals to ensure rich and complex aromatic wines.
All of Milazzo’s classic method sparkling wines are created following a fastidious and restrictive protocol, resulting from a 40 year experience in winemaking and 25 years of production and commercialization. All have minimum 24 months ageing on the lees.

Perlage: Very fine and persistent bubbles.
