My Notes:

About Rotari:

History or legend, the name Rotari derives from the Longobard King Rotari who fought one of the most important battles along the valleys of this territory in his conquest of Italy and made history with his famous "Edict of Rotari", a book about the rules of winemaking.

Talento from the Dolomites

The Talento seal guarantees that all Rotari sparkling wines are made in the classical bottle fermentation method, using the traditional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Talento wines undergo a second fermentation in the bottle and are aged on their lees for an extensive period of time to produce a complex, elegant wine. This is a laborious and expensive process used only for the finest sparkling wines.

Rotari follows this refined sparkling tradition growing its own grapes in the heart of the Dolomites at the foothills of the Italian Alps. This is a mountainous environment characterized by crystal clear sunlight and cool breeze from the over 400 lakes and numerous glaciers of the surrounding mountains peaking at over 9000 feet. The ideal environment to produce elegant, vivid, and crisp sparkling wines and fully express the Talento style.

Rotari’s aging on the lees lasts for a minimum period of 24 months and produces a sparkling wine that is both a perfect aperitif as well as a noble companion to both Italian and International cuisines. Full and toasty, with aromas of wheat bread and Golden Delicious apples, Rotari is consistently well rated recognized for its consistent good quality, year after year
