Description

GRAPE VARIETAL 100% Glera AREA OF PRODUCTION/ ORIGIN Prosecco DOC, Veneto Grapes are sourced from vineyards in the area surrounding the town of Treviso, within the Prosecco D.O.C. (Denominazione di Origine Controllata). Situated halfway between the Italian Alps and the city of Venice, the area of Treviso experiences equal infl uence from cooling alpine breezes as well as the Adriatic Sea. Th e abundance of sunny summer days allows this cooler climate to ripen grapes for Prosecco production. harvest date Second half of September vinification Aft er pressing of the grapes and clarifi cation of the must, primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at 64° Fahrenheit for 8-10 days. Aft er fermentation is complete, a second fermentation due to the addition of must occurs in glass-lined tanks over 45 days. Th is process, known as Charmat, produces the bubbles to create the sparkling wine while preserving the inherent freshness of the indigenous Glera grape variety (an advantage over the more time intensive Champagne method). Th e pressure is maintained at a lower level to create the “Frizzante” style. cellaring 2 years tasting notes Intensely aromatic and crisp on the palate, with aromas and fl avors of yellow apple, white peach, pear and notes of white fl owers. food pairing Excellent as an aperitif, it is a perfect accompaniment to hors-d’oeuvres and delicate fi rst courses.
