Torre Fornello Malvasia Dolce Frizzante is a single-variety Malvasia di Candia Aromática sparkling wine produced by the Torre Fornello winery, under the IGT Emilia, in Emilia-Romagna, Italy.
Torre Fornello Malvasia Dolce Frizzante sparkling wine is made using the Marinotti Method, also known as Charmat or Granvás, which, unlike the Champenoise Method, involves the second alcoholic fermentation taking place in closed and pressurised tanks instead of in the bottle.
The grapes used to make Torre Fornello Malvasia Dolce Frizzante come from plots with predominantly clay-silty soils where the harvest is carried out manually. The clusters are gently pressed and alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature with subsequent tirage and second fermentation in special pressurised tanks. The resulting wine is cold stabilised and bottled through an isobaric filling system for carbonated drinks. It then rests in the bottle for about 5 months before going to market.
Located in western Emilia-Romagna, Enrico Sgorbati founded the Torre Fornello winery in 1998, working under the philosophy of preserving environmental sustainability to ensure minimal intervention in the winemaking process so that the wines reflect the landscape and its personality through their quality.
