Top 10% wine in the UK
Brut sparkling white
Blend: 70% Chardonnay + 30% Pinot Nero
From: Italy, Trento Spumante Bianco DOC
By: Maso Martis
A mountainous sparkling white from the Maso Martis vineyard at the foot of Monte Calisio in Northern Italy; here, the organically tended vines enjoy both bright sunshine and cooling breezes. Maso Martis Brut is a traditional white, made from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The residents of this rugged realm have been making wine here for 5000 years.
The vineyards and winery – situated 450 feet above sea level, were bought in 1990 by Antonio and Roberta Steltzer, although the land has been farmed here for centuries. The Steltzer’s dream was to create fine wines by merging nature technology and passion: grapes are carefully hand picked during a ‘festival-like’ harvest season, and transformed to fine sparkly wine in the modern winery.
