Ca' Momi Ca' Secco Frizzante NV

ID No: 385217
Product Description
Tasting Notes This refreshing and gently frizzante white wine has hints of tropical flavors with delicate notes of pear, apples and lemon zest and tastes of stone fruit from the apricot family.
 
Food Pairing Notes Light, refreshing, with hints of citrus, apple and peach, Ca’ Secco doesn't overpower the palate and goes nicely with anything from pizza to seafood and it's heavenly with oysters. The famous “Bellini” (Venice 1948) : 2 ripe pureed white peaches (or peach nectar) + 1/4 ounce simple syrup + 1/4 ounce lemon juice +16 ounces of chilled Ca’ Secco.
 
Other Notes This zesty, nearly dry white wine, comes from an unusual mix of grapes: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Muscat; fermented a second time in pressurized, temperature-controlled tanks, where it becomes sparkling before bottling.
Winery: Ca'Momi

The Ca'Momi Estate
When Dario de Conti, Valentina Guolo-Migotto and Stefano Migotto came to America, they wanted to make wine in Napa Valley, while capturing the spirit of their Italian heritage. They take great pride in selecting premium sources of their wine grapes with the majority of the fruit coming from Napa Valley and the rest from other carefully selected areas of California.

Napa Valley is renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon, and also applauded for producing elegant Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc. In addition to Ca’ Momi’s wide variety of red and white still wines, they produce Ca’ Secco, the first ever Prosecco-style sparkling wine made in California.

The house in the watercolor painting on our label (see image at right) really is Ca' Momi, our house in Veneto Italy.

We named the house in honor of Momi dea Bionda, a local character who was famous for his obsession with the house, his grapes and his wine. We liked the idea of keeping the memory of him alive. Momi was a memorable character. In his later years, he would ride around the property on an old Moto Guzzi motorcycle withthat had a sidecar attached. Across his lap he carried a rifle, to scare away those hoping to steal a taste of his grapes, and in the sidecar rode his best friend Lidia, a faithful dog who continued to ride in the sidecar even after she went blind. Some of the locals say that he haunts our home. We prefer to think that his ghost is just keeping an eye on things. His dog, too. We love the idea that Momi still watches over our home and its vineyard. In fact, we think we have seen him quite a few times.
