In 1975 the private producer association "Consorzio Talento" was founded with the aim of the Metodo classico, the classic manufacturing method for one sparkling wine by means of bottle fermentation
, to maintain. Today, almost 50 producers from, for example, the regions of Lombardy, Trentino and Veneto belong to it. The protected designation Talento is used instead Spumante
used because this general name has a bad image due to many mass products of simpler quality.
