Brut Classic Method White Sparkling Wine Donnafugata

Donnafugata's Millesimato sparkling wine is a classic method Brut refermented in the bottle with surprising elegance. It is packaged in a beautiful cardboard box depicting the face of an elegant woman among the bubbles. The woman's light smile, which brings to mind the Mona Lisa or Lady with an Ermine by Leonardo Da Vinci, and the gold foil inserts in the perlage recall the finesse and liveliness of this sicilian sparkling wine.
