The vineyard: the Freisa (40% of the blend) comes from an old vineyard situated in the typical zone for this variety in mid Piedmont - Chieri. The other grapes come from our youngest vineyards in their first harvest - we rigidly selected the less phenolically mature bunches that wouldn’t give a high level red wine and picked them for sparkling.

The varieties: indigenous red grape varieties, some of them among the most diffused in Italy, others - rare and of quite limited production, such as the Pelaverga.

The wine: delicate on the nose with red fruits, peaches and apple notes. The vague tannins tighten the structure and underline the dark mineral finsh.

The name: The hedgehog (“riccio” [rEE-choh]) is our symbol. Riccio + spumante = Ricciante.
