Produced purely from an ancient hyper-local clone of Salamino di Santa Croce, “PerFranco” is named for Gianluca’s grandfather Franco. Pale in hue, it pours a lightly hazy salmon in the glass, yet its overall spirit is vinous and serious. With a blast of mouthwatering acidity that could awaken one from a coma, it buries its bubbles beneath a bracingly tense texture which delivers notes of lemon curd, green apples, and freshly plucked herbs with dirt still clinging to the roots. It finishes elegant and persistent, with a clear through-line of flavors and ample fruit.
