This Prosecco was sourced from the province of Treviso with Glera grapes that are grown from the Conegliano hills to the foot of the Valdobbiadene hills. This area is known for its mild climate and alluvial clay soils which is ideal for allowing the Glera grapes to fully ripen by harvest time in mid-September.
After harvest, the grapes are gently pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks with the addition of selected yeasts. The second fermentation occurs with controlled temperatures to preserve the fresh aromas of the grapes. Finally, the sparkling wine is cold stabilized, filtered and bottled.
Ideal as an apéritif or in cocktails, this sparkling wine also pairs particularly well with heavier dishes such as pastas with a meat or cream sauce, fresh seafood and shellfish, or a wood-fired pizza.
“Considered one of the most prestigious regions for Prosecco, Treviso’s high-quality reputation shows well with this sparkler. Glera grapes from the Conegliano to the Valdobbiadene foothills fully ripen for a tremendously expressive wine. The bubbles burst with a fragrance of lavender and lilac. Notes of mandarin, pineapple and white peach are heavenly.”
