NOBISPARK     Bidule

The search for the finest balance between the natural compounds of oak and sparkling wines during alcoholic fermentation has led us to develop NOBISPARK. This oenological bidule is the result of a project to develop the use of oak during the second fermentation. Used in the same way as a classic bidule, NOBISPARK does not require any specific equipment when it is inserted after filling the bottle.

Toasts options are Nobile Fresh (untoasted) or Sensation.
