Gruppo Campari has released a vintage sparkling wine to celebrate 260 years of the Cinzano brand. Cuvée Vintage Alta Langa DOCG 2009 is made using the 'metodo classico' - the traditional method of sparkling wine production, which sees secondary fermentation take place in the bottle - allowing more contact with the lees. According to Campari, only 10% of Italian sparkling wine is made in this way. The majority is made using the 'tank method', which sees secondary fermentation take place in stainless steel tanks. 

Cuvée Vintage Alta Langa DOCG 2009 is made using Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. 

The group's managing director for 'Italian Icons' Andrea Neri told just-drinks the release is limited with later launches expected in the coming years. The group has bottles of the Cuvée Vintage Alta Langa DOCG 2009 that are yet to be disgorged. 

"This release will build on the Cinzano brand equity," Neri said.
