DENOMINAZIONE DI ORIGINE CONTROLLATA
This wine is obtained from the vinification of glera grapes, selected and harvested in the vineyards located in Buttrio, a land suited for the production of this variety. Light yellow colour. Fine and persistent perlage. Elegant bouquet, floral, yeast and crusty bread. Delicate, aromatic, round flavour. Contains sulfites.
Soil composition: the soil is of Eocene origin and is rich in clay which give the wine its typical characteristics of fragrance and aroma. The presence of micro-elements in the soil such as boron, magnesium, etc., together with the typical microclimate of the area, favour the grapes with an excellent natural level of alcohol.
Vinification: early harvest so as to achieve the spumante base with a good acidity and level of alcohol that is not too high (around 10,5 % volume), soft pressing and refrigeration are followed by the settling and racking of the cleaned must, then fermentation at a controlled temperature (around 17°C) and the addition of selected yeasts which favour the development of the wine’s characteristic fragrances and aromas.
This will be the perfect base for the “second fermentation” in tank during the year to create a pleasant sparkling Prosecco Doc that served at 6-8°C is perfect as aperitif, fish, pizza and pasta.
