Tasting Notes

Made with 100% Prosecco grapes (also called Glera) this sparkling wine gets its life from optimum freshness and drinkability. This Prosecco is the perfect companion for a lively and cheerful toast. In appearance it gives off a straw-yellow color with a subtle yet driving froth. To the nose it offers fresh floral aromas and a pleasingly fruity tinge in which one can recognize shades of apple and pear. In the mouth, its freshness and aromaticity are sustained by the wholesome mineral blend, culminating in delicate fruity sensations and a pleasing finish that brings to mind the crust of bread.

Vinification

The grapes are removed from their stalks and undergo a soft pressing. The must is set to ferment in steel tubs kept at a controlled temperature: the resulting wine is then re-fermented in autoclaves for about 40 days, with the help of selected yeasts that elevate the freshness of the grape and make it effervescent.
