The baby brother of the Superiore DOCG above, this is lighter and drier and comes from the foothills of the Treviso Mountains. It is a delicious drop – made with exactly the same care and attention to detail as its more expensive sibling.
Grapes: 100% Glera grapes. Glera is northern Italy’s Prosecco grape. This green-skinned variety has been grown for hundreds of years in the Veneto and Friuli regions, most famously to produce sparkling Prosecco wines.
Winemaking: Charmat method sparkling process. Made using the Glera grapes from the 10-hectare vineyard surrounding the winery, in the heart of the Treviso DOC region, northeast of Conegliano. The first fermentation takes place after a brief maceration, which enhances the typical citrus and tropical aromas of the Glera grapes. These intense, fruity aromas are preserved through the second fermentation, which takes place in large temperature-controlled stainless steel vats.
Tasting note: Lemon-yellow in colour with a persistent bead of elegant, refined bubbles. Aromas of white flowers, apricot and herbs create a delicately soft bouquet.The palate is comprised of citrus, orange blossoms and stone fruits. Fresh citrus and floral notes linger on the finish. An ideal apertif and the perfect choice for celebrations large and small.Also an excellent base for sparkling cocktails.
