Farfalla Extra Brut

Farfalla Extra Brut represents the essence of the Ballabio style. After a long refinement in the bottle it is a synthesis of elegance, freshness and complexity. Its balance comes from the Pinot Noir grapes, coming from proprietary vineyards with a predominantly calcareous-clayey structure set on hilly sides between 300 and 500 meters above sea level.
