A huge house favourite when it comes to sparkling wine here at Cave Wayward, so look no further if you seek a recommendation. ‘Sui Lieviti' roughly translates as ‘on lees’, meaning that all of the grape must that starts the second fermentation in-bottle is left exactly where it is, leading to the wine’s sandy haze and salinity in flavour. We absolutely love this style (also known as Col Fondo) and urge you to give it a try if you’re not already familiar. The Pignoletto is an undervalued grape of Emilia-Romagna but here it shows its potential; zesty lemons with a savoury depth. Rustic, unpolished fizz that will make run-of-the-mill Prosecco look positively boring in comparison. Next time you rustle up a fritto misto (or even if you’re just heading to the chippy) look no further for partnership perfection.
