Villa Cialdini, Pignoletto Sparkling Brut Modena


Pignoletto, also known as Grechetto Gentile, is a local grape variety from central Italy. As Pignoletto, it is grown in Emilia mainly to produce sparkling wines by the tank method, producing a lively and fruity wine with floral notes.

This wine is straw yellow in colour with youthful highlights. There are distinctive aromas of pear, apple and light floral notes, which are enhanced by its fine and persistent bubbles. It has bright acidity on the palate with a characteristically refreshing, fruity finish.
