Sullerba is Chardonnay classic method. The first fermentation is done in amphora on native yeast and the second fermentation in the bottle using as re-starter must of the same grapes. The wine is not disgorged and is to be served unfiltered. The nose has hints of pineapple and white pepper, thyme and rosemary. Zesty with bright acidity and fine bubbles. (from the importer)
