Dalla Cia, Bullicante NV
The name Giorgio Dalla Cia will always be associated with the iconic Rubicon, the first Bordeaux style blend in South Africa, which earned him the accolade of South Africa’s Champion Winemaker in 1980 and producer of the best red blend in the world in 2006.
As a result, this is a wine farm that is synonymous with progressive thinking and outstanding quality.
The Pinot Grigio grapes are grown within 15km of the ocean, which allows for aromas that exude a gentle bouquet of citrus, orange blossom and a flinty minerality.
Beautiful, easy drinking bubbles, crisp on the palate with a well-balanced mouth feel and low acidity, the finish is gentle and long-lingering with an aftertaste of cream, marzipan and white pear.
Dalla Cia stands for age-old Italian tradition and passion for innovation. Established in 2001 by winemaker Giorgio Dalla Cia (the originator of the most acclaimed Bordeaux-style blend in South Africa). The brand is synonymous with exceptional quality. Authenticity and progressive thinking across wines, Grappa and other speciality products.
“Bullicante” is a technique mastered by the famous murano art glass blowers. Several layers of air bubbles are blown and pulled with the blowpipe to create tiny depressions into thick glass. The result is a visual concert of elongated bubbles trying to reach the glass surface.
Our Sparkling Pinot Grigio wine presents a gentle bouquet of citrus, orange blossom and a flinty minerality. Crisp on the palate with a well balanced mouth feel and low acidity. The finish is gentle and long-lingering with an aftertaste of cream, marzipan and white pear.
