Since the middle of the thirteenth century the toponym ‘Prosech’ or ‘Prosecum’, but also the more modern ‘Proseco’
refers to a small town, bordering to the south-east with the bishopric of Trieste and to the north with the territory of
Duino. Even today Prosecco is still a small town in the province of Trieste, in the far north-east of the Italian peninsula.
The Glera grapes, produced in the high hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, are harvested strictly a amano, around
the second half of September when they have reached their peak and present a brilliant golden straw yellow colour.
WINEMAKING / VINIFICATION:
Once collected in small crates they are taken to the cellar where they are cooled to 10°C. After pressing the must is
immediately separated from the clean skins and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 14° –
16° C for about 10/12 days.
AGING & BOTTLING:
Once fermentation is completed, the wine is cooled to 0°C and left to mature for a few days. After maturation it is
filtered sterile and bottled. Finally it is left to rest in the bottle for at least 1 month before being released for
SORTING OF GRAPES:
This product has been created to express at most all the characteristics of a true Prosecco Superiore Docg. Produced
from beautiful golden yellow high hillside grapes, ripe to the right point, harvested strictly by hand and transported to
the cellar in small boxes.
Fresh dry, rightly acidulous but very well balanced by a mineral note that gives flavor and persistence to the palate. The
typical taste of golden apple and a citrus hint, make this sparkling wine very elegant, delicate on the nose thanks to its
richness in minerals typical of the well ripe grapes of high hills where, thanks to their exposure, the bunches acquire a
beautiful straw-yellow color that is transmitted in its entirety to the wine as well as enriching it with a complex mineral
flavor and acid structure. The rich, fine and persistent perlage gives the product a pleasant sensation of fullness that
fills the palate thanks to its creamy foam.
