Made with 100% Nerello Mascarello, the NV Etna Metodo Classico Blanc de Noir Brut Gaudensius has a pretty floral note with orange blossoms and sweet almond flower. There is structure here, thanks to the tannic grape variety. This is a bright, floral and crisp sparkling wine with a very unique aromatic profile. There are a lot of citrusy tones with lime and pink grapefruit on the close. Some 18,000 bottles were made.
