UNDERWATER WINE SPARKLING EXTRADRY VERMENTINO DI SARDEGNA DOC
Akènta Sub, the Underwater sparkling wine, great excellence of Sardinia and Italy.
A limited number of bottles of Akènta sparkling wine are selected for underwater refinement, made at about 40 meters deep in the waters of the sea in front of the coasts of the Porto Conte Natural Park. Thanks to this extraordinary aging for 6-10 months, the Akènta evolves, becoming Akènta Sub. When Akènta Sub sees the light and oxygenates in the glass, with its fine, elegant and persistent perlage, it tells us about its journey in a taste of unique intensity. Produced in limited numbers, it is a wine of the highest quality and exclusivity, ideal for enthusiasts and admirers and for a very special, unforgettable gift. Each bottle is a work of art, a unique piece designed by the sea, not replicable.
