The “EGLEUCO” originates from the famous aigleucos, the sparkling wine mentioned by Virgilio, that was produced not only in Rome, but also in Greece and in the Narbonese province. It appears that since the fall of the Roman Empire till the end of the XVII century, there were no known sparkling wines, until in 1600, when it was “reinvented” by the benedettini monks. The traces of its rebirth can also be found in dutch paintings, in which a champagne glass filled with a sparkling liquid is depicted, and in particular, a Rembrandt painting from 1650, displayed in the art gallery of Dresda. This typology of sweet sparkling wine, as in the Roman time, lasted for a long time, practically until the end of the year 1800, when it was transformed into that dry fresh and elegant wine, that we all appreciate today. Therefore, the evolution happened beginning with an Extra Dry Falanghina to a Brut Falanghina sparkling wine.
