The Villa Saletta Spumante is a Rosé spumante made from 100% Sangiovese from a single vineyard. The wine is made using the traditional method (“metodo classico”) and is naturally zero dosage.
The wine is hand riddled and aged on the yeast for 1 year prior to hand-disgorging. It is naturally zero dosage, with residual sugar (less than 2 g/liter) that is less than Brut and Extra Brut adjusted sparkling wines. The 2010 vintage is the first publicly available vintage.
The Villa Saletta Spumante’s zero-dosage nature (no sugar added), and dry, lightly structured style is ideal as an aperitif that easily carries through to appetizers. Equally, the Spumante can be enjoyed as an accompaniment to first courses such as seafood pasta.

- The 2006 vintage received a Silver Medal in the Rosso IGT Toscana category at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) 2009 and a Commended in the International Wine Challenge (IWC) Awards 2010. Both the 2005 and 2006 vintages were commended at the 2009 Decanter World Wine Awards.
