Packed full of juicy cherry and raspberry flavours this wine is well structured on the palate with integrated tannins and a mineral finish.

Rosso Bio Frizzante is a declassified red prosseco made using the traditional Col Fondo method. Made using Raboso grapes 100 metres above sea level the Rosso Bio Frizzante is light bodied, and refreshing. 

The Casa Belfi project started when Albino Armani discovered a young oenologist named Maurizio Donadi. Their encounter gave birth to an inspiring cultivation and processing philosophy, based on the respect for nature and natural traditions. The estate works organically with natural manures and green fertilisers to achieve the healthiest possible grapes. Vinification is also natural with the grapes crushed gently, and the must clarified by cold decantation. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts at a cool temperature. After fermentation, the wine remains in contact with the lees in tanks for approximately six months. When spring arrives the prosecco is bottled according to the biodynamic calendar, after which the wine completes its secondary fermentation as the residual sugars are transformed by the yeasts into alcohol and carbon dioxide.
