Demarie winery carries on the traditions of classic winemaking in the Langhe region, while at the same time experimenting and pushing the envelope. This exciting new wine showcases their passion to grow and evolve.
Luigi is a “fun” wine, naturally sparkling, authentic and energetic.
Made with white and red indigenous grapes of production area, “Luigi” is a Pét-Nat, short for the French term Pétillant Naturelle, known also with the name Méthode Ancestrale, because it is believed to be a very ancient style of winemaking.
Unlike Metodo Classico, Pét-Nat undergoes a single fermentation: it is bottled during alcoholic fermentation, when not all of the natural sugars of the grapes are yet exhausted. In this way the carbon dioxide produced by the end of the fermentation gets trapped in the bottle, giving its sparkliness to the wine.
In Luigi the sediment remains in the bottle, making it turbid, protecting it naturally and giving it a more intense flavor.
To taste it fully, we suggest you turn it over gently, so as to bring the sediment into suspension and make the wine cloudy, or cool the wine in a vertical position and pour it gently to prevent the sediment from falling into the glass.
