Blanc de Blancs "Sparkling Celebration, Woman Winemaker"
Alessandra Divella, Blanc de Blancs, 2016
The Wine: A perfect glass of bubbles is not something to take for granted. This Italian beauty is no different. Crisp bubbles, an intoxicating almond smell, full mouthfeel...it is a true delight. An Italian Champagne, if you will.
The Winemaker: Alessandra Divella is a rare one-woman show winemaker. Hailing from Lombardy, Italy, she specializes in Chardonnay, and her Blanc de Blancs (meaning 100% Chardonnay) is a sparkling wine that would make those in Champagne blush. Using old oak barrels and spontaneous fermentation, Divella's Blanc de Blancs is the ideal sparkling natural wine for any celebration!
The Place: Lombardy, Italy
The Grape: Chardonnay
