Sparkling wine characterized by a lively straw yellow colour with light green glares and by a fine and vivacious perlage. The nose is fragrant and fruity, with fresh notes of Golden apple and white peach, delicately floral and with a soft touch of acacia flowers and hints of orange fruits. The taste is perfectly dry and reveals a good body and a sapidity which combines itself with the acid structure and makes the wine a pleasant and fresh drink. Its long finish is enlivened by the aromatic notes which come into evidence with the olfactory post-sensations. Very good as aperif, served alone or to join fish appetizers, pumpkin flowers or vegetable tempura. It is also an excellent wine to be served all trough the meal, with vegetable or shell fish first courses, seafood dishes in general or delicate recipes based on white meat.
Glera* (traditionally called Prosecco) grapes grown on our hills.
Vineyards situated on the hills of the Dolomitic ridges, in the northern part of Treviso province.
The second part of September.
White vinification, that is to say without the skins, at a controlled temperature of 18°C (68°F).
Taking on of the Sparkle
In big sealed steel vats at a controlled temperature of 12-14°C (approx. 41-45°F), with permanence on the yeast of about 2 months.
5-7°C (approx. 41-45°F), uncorking the bottle just before serving.
About 4,5 gr/Ltr.
* From 2010 Glera is synonymous of Prosecco. The new regulations which discipline the production of Prosecco do not contemplate the Extra Brut version, therefore this sparkling wine can not indicate Prosecco on its label.
Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Area
The Valdobbiadene grape is grown in the northern part of the Marca Trevigiana in a zone extending from Colle Umberto to Valdobbiadene, the ancient zone of Valduplavensis, “...where the vine blossoms eternally...” (St.Venantius Fortunatus 535-603 AD).
Valdobbiadene is indisputably the most interesting vine-growing area in terms of quality and
indeed its vineyards have always produced the most prestigious and fragrant Prosecco Superiore.
“Vitis etiam provectioris aetatis facit uvas meliores et melius vinum, sed facit uvas pauciores proportione suae quantitatis quam juvenis”.
Alberto Magno (1193-1280)
