Hirundo Martinotti


GRAPE VARIETY: Turbiana, Tuchi’

The name of this wine originates from the word "swallow" (in Latin language Hirundo) as to celebrate these elegant birds which accompany us from spring to summer with their circles in the sky and their tweets, then fly to the south during the harvest period to return the following spring, when the wines reach their maturity. All Selva Capuzza sparkling wines are dedicated to Hirundo (the swallow) and are known as the “sky” wines.

The Hirundo Brut Martinotti is produced from white grapes of Turbiana e Tuchi’ harvested by hand. It undergoes a long fermentation in autoclave according to the "Italian method" (also called Martinotti or Charmat) that generates a full and structured sparkling wine. This wine has been in production since the seventies and represents one of the very first (if not the first) experiences of sparkling wine in the region. Beyond its traditional use as an aperitif, it is an excellent choice as a wine to go with raw fish, sushi, or more sophisticated fish-based meals. It is crispy and sapid, with typical white flowers and chamomile scent.
