BUBBLES HAVE BECOME PART OF DAILY LIFE. EVERY DAY CAN BE A DAY TO CELEBRATE. TREVISO IS THE CAPITAL OF A REGION THAT HAS ENJOYED A REPUTATION FOR FINE FOOD AND WINE SINCE MEDIAEVAL TIMES AND PROSECCO IS THE WINE IT IS MOST FAMOUS FOR.

ALESSANDRO, GIANMARIO, SIMONE

A Prosecco Millesimato that stands out for its remarkable properties, most notably its crispness and moderate alcoholic strength, proving popular with a whole host of consumers. It hails from the province of Treviso, adopted homeland of the Glera grape.

The vineyard

Grown on the Treviso district’s characteristic terrain, which slopes down from the hills to the plains. Vines are trained using the arc-cane system with a vine density of 2,300 plants per hectare.

Harvesting

Strictly by hand, grapes are picked just before they are ripe. This method results in a high level of acidity teamed with moderate alcoholic strength.

Vinification

The wine is made with grapes from a single vintage. Must is fermented at a controlled temperature of 18°C in stainless steel tanks. Holding the juice at a low temperature is a means of retaining the aromas in all their splendour. The next stage is the sparkling process, which uses the Charmat method and takes 40 days, again at a controlled temperature.

Sensory profile

Pale straw-yellow in colour, it has a continuous and persistent mousse of ultra-fine bubbles that rise up in fine streams. The aromas are reminiscent of white flowers, with subtle scents of banana and fruity apple notes. The mousse dissolves elegantly in the mouth. The wine opens quickly with a feeling of freshness before finishing smoothly with well balanced sweetness.

Pairings

An extraordinarily good aperitif wine, though it also works excellently through the whole meal. At its best when paired with battered vegetables, calamari, fresh shrimps, delicate starters and drier fish mains.

Serving

Serve at 8-10°C in long-stemmed very thin-walled flutes.

Storage

Keep out of sunlight in a dry place at a constant temperature in the 12 to 15°C range.
