FAUSTO DEMI SEC BRANCO TRADICIONAL

A Pizzato vem elaborando espumantes desde 2006, inicialmente apenas com as uvas do Vale dos Vinhedos, com a marca Pizzato, e desde 2010 também com uvas do vinhedo Doutor Fausto, com a marca Fausto.

Elaborado pelo método tradicional (Champenoise), tem por objetivo ser um espumante de médio amadurecimento sobre as borras, mantendo um caracter jovial, fresco, com muita fruta e floral, e uma doçura totalmente equilibrada e refrescante.
