As the temperatures drop, natural cold interrupts fermentation when there are still fermentable sugars. The wine is immediately bottled and as the temperature increases the fermentation begins again for the foaming. The Lubigo is delicate, fine, pleasantly acid. Closes with the typical almond finish.
