Nebbiolo varietal produced in a fizzy, rose style

Something light and inviting to begin the evening with; and surprisingly it's made from the Nebbiolo varietal.

Most times in Singapore we see Nebbiolo sold as still, red wines; especially when they come from Piedmont's Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara or Gheme sub-regions. It's taken seriously with the need to age and at times decant awhile before serving. 

This particular wine caught my attention as it brings out the 'lighter' side of Nebbiolo. It's made in a fizzy, rose style, something not usually seen when you visit a local wine retail outlet. 

This 2015 Fabio Gea 'Falavosca' Rosato Frizzante comes from Barbaresco. The viticultural practice leans toward the organic way. Upon harvest,  destemmed grapes undergo a short maceration before fermentation begins. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered. A nifty wine label made from handmade paper further lends to this wine's appeal.
