About the Wine:  Bigaro is a softly sweet, gently effervescent salmon-colored sparkler made from Brachetto and Moscato grapes. Similar to Moscato in sweetness, the Bigaro substitutes red fruits for Moscato’s typical tropical fruits.

Vineyard Notes:  The vines average between 25 and 60 years old. Perrone's vineyards are face northwest. Stefano Perrone believes that ripeness is easy to achieve if yields are kept reasonable. His vineyards cool down in the evening and, thus, are able to retain more acidity and freshness. Harvest is done by hand.
