Alta Langa DOCG Giulio I Vendemmia 2014

Great bubbles, for the Metodo Classico lovers.

Giulio I Alta Langa DOCG Vintage is the highest result of the historic and traditional production of Tosti bubbles.

2014 was an unpredictable year, full of twists. However, the wise management of the vineyard has allowed us to bring perfectly healthy grapes to the cellar, characterized by a pleasant acidity that gives the final product a great freshness and elegance, as well as an excellent longevity over time.
