The Classic Method Brut Villa Merighi celebrates the dream of the company's founder. A classic method of great structure and elegance, which best expresses the personality of Chardonnay in purity, enriched by 36 months of ageing on the lees.
Two hectares of vineyards that extend over the eastern Morainic hills of Lake Garda, in the town of Sona (Verona area).
