THE SOLBRITO HILLS
Our Sparkling Freisa d’Asti is named after the hill situated above Roatto, and is the flagship wine of our production. Characterized by the delicate scent of raspberry and rose, garnet red in colour, it has a good body and a slight liveliness.
This wine can accompany most meals, but is best served with cured meats, pasta dishes with a meat sauce, white meats and fried foods.
