The Vigneti Le Monde dazzles the senses with notes of young strawberries, dusty rose, crushed stone minerality, and hints of sage. Soft textures wash across the senses, carried by a stimulating mix of fine bubbles and zesty acids, giving way to floral-laced red fruits with a hint of savory spice. The finish buzzes with minerals, salty in nature, mixing with a crisp note of sour apples and making the mouth water.  2020 – 2022
