It has a super mouth-filling mousse – although I'd describe it more as a foam than a mousse. The ancestral 'Col fondo' method does cost more to produce, as you'd expect, but at this price, I would back-up the truck. WARNING - open with great care. Safety first, safety second! Please open with a tea towel secured over the crown cap.....good things come to those who wait!


Tasting Notes

*Health & Safety Warning!* It has come to our attention that the crown cap and the plastic stopper under it can pop off with considerable pressure upon opening. If you don't open it with care, there is a potential for the cap to shoot off and cause injury or damage to property. We would suggest using a tea towel to cover the cap upon removal. We are also looking into Swig-branded safety goggles - watch this space! ?


Robin's Note:

'Col Fondo' or as Fratelli Collavo calls it 'Collfondo' sounds like an instruction on a musical score - either to the basses to sing a low F with richness, or to an organist to unleash the 64 footers - but it actually means on the lees. This ancestral method of making the second fermentation in the bottle and then leaving the dead yeasts in the bottle is the ancient way of making sparkling wine. You should end up with more flavour and complexity and a more substantial feeling from being unfiltered. As it opens up it develops a delicious peach flavour with a touch of bread. It has a super mouth-filling mousse – although I'd describe it more as a foam than a mousse. The ancestral 'Col fondo' method does cost more to produce, as you'd expect, but at this price, I would back-up the truck.
