We'd like to introduce "Libero," a new wine in the Selagrossa portfolio. Metodo di Scacchi is a historic method of producing a sparkling wine in the Marche region. It's named after Francesco Scacchi, who in 1622 wrote a book that in part outlined a new way to produce sparkling wine. At the time, he even mentioned the health benefits of such a wine. THIS could be a perfect ending to your "Dry January!"
Alberto was inspired by the Scacchi method as well as by the practicality of producing this frizzante at Selvagrossa, without the typical tanks and bottling machines necessary for a traditional sparkling wine.
Named after Alberto's grandfather, Libero is a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Albanella. They are cofermented in tank with natural yeast. The wine is then put in bottle, along with the frozen must (grazie Scacchi!), and it referments in bottle under a crown cap. No disgorgement, sold just as is.
This is technically a "frizzante" wine, with only two bars of pressure.
The wine is delicious. Light, floral, with hints of both citrus and stone fruit. It is dangerously easy to drink!
Alberto made only a few hundred bottles in its second vintage, and you will not find "Libero" anywhere outside the Marche. It is a great value!
