Santo Stefano

< Back

This brilliant wine has an inviting pale greenish colour and fine strands of persistent perlage. Its delicate fruity bouquet is subtle yet persistent, with aromas of mature apples and lemon blossoms. Fresh and lightly sweet, Santo Stefano is well-structured and rounded. It is harmoniously balanced and has a long and gently fruity finish. It is the classic “ombretta trevigiana” (which could be roughly translated as the “between-meal drink of Treviso”) often drunk with pastries and cakes.

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)
