Giustino B.

< Back

Dedicated to Giustino Bisol, who founded the winery in 1950, this sparkling wine is the fruit of extensive trials and experiments with particular selections and techniques, from the vines to the bottle. The Giustino B. therefore embodies the living expression of our experience and determination in the search for the very best and of our passionate dedication to the grape itself (traditionally called Prosecco). After the first fermentation the wine matures in the big vats at a low temperature until spring and then it is transferred in the pressure-vats for the second fermentation. It remains with its yeast until the bottling that is carried on at the beginning of June. We suggest to drink it from September.

Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Area

Inside the wide territory of Prosecco DOC (Controlled Denomination of Origin) the historical and small area of Valdobbiadene DOCG(Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin) stands out for its excellent quality grapes and its wine is named VALDOBBIADENE PROSECCO SUPERIORE.
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.
The presence of many old and sometimes very old vines contributes to raising the quality of the Valdobbiadene vineyards. Thanks to its considerable root system, an old Prosecco vine, which may be defined as “the memory of the region”, successfully copes with the varied climate so typical of the Valdobbiadene hills, thereby ensuring constantly high quality year by year.

“Vitis etiam provectioris aetatis facit uvas meliores et melius vinum, sed facit uvas pauciores proportione suae quantitatis quam juvenis”.

Alberto Magno (1193-1280)
