"Naturalis" is perhaps the most refined and clearly expressive wine from La Valle with just 2.8-3.8 grams of residual sugar at the time of disgorgement. It is a wine of strong character that is exquisitely fresh, incisive, and pure. The lasting impression is that of minerality and balance. Food Pairing: Franciacorta Extra Brut makes for an obvious apertivo but lends itself well to clean and simple flavors at the table. "Naturalis" will accentuate a briny platter of chilled oysters, pasta with zucchini and lemon, or simply grilled langoustines. The wine is very dry and it is best to avoid pairing it with sweet dishes.

Delicate aromas of hawthorn, white spring flower and a whiff of orchard fruit aromas lead the nose on this refined sparkler. The vibrant palate doles yellow apple, citrus zest and toasted breadcrumb accompanied by an elegant mousse.
