Spumante made from indigenous grape varieties
Tenuta Cavalier Pepe
Milena Pepe was born and raised in Belgium, but after studying marketing in Brussels and further training in viticulture and oenology in Provence and Burgundy, she moved to the region of Irpinia, in Campania, where her paternal family has its roots. Her father Angelo, a well-known restaurateur in the capital, entrusted her with the management of the family estate Tenuta Cavalier Pepe: 60 hectares of vines (for approximately 400,000 bottles of wine produced annually) and 12 hectares of olive trees. Focusing on indigenous grape varieties such as Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avelino and Aglianico, Tenuta Cavalier Pepe produces an extremely wide range of wines from which Popsss has selected his favourites.
This "spumante" is produced using the Charmat method, where the second fermentation is not carried out in the bottle - as in Champagne or Belgium - but in a high-pressure tank or autoclave. Less expensive than the traditional method, this technique makes it possible to produce bubbles at a relatively low price. Oro Spumante ages for 6 months in these closed tanks before bottling.
Light golden colour.
Nose of green apple and lemon, with notes of acacia.
Persistent floral and lemon notes, nice roundness.
An excellent aperitif wine.
