Prosecco DOC Treviso Frizzante Sur Lie “Colfondo”
This white sparkling wine, made from Glera grapes, is produced following the traditional method with the second fermentation in the bottle sur lie, on its yeast. This method gives the wine unique characteristics. After separating the
sediment, the wine presents a bright straw yellow colour (slightly cloudy if shaken too energetically) with a lively and evident development of bubbles. It has an elegant and complex bouquet, that ranges from fruit aromas to hints of bread crust which is in a state of constant evolution due to the yeast in the bottle. On the palate it is crisp and pleasantly bitter, the ultimate dry! This wine is extremely digestible and therefore suits all occasions. It is very appreciated with locally produced salami, in particular with the “sopressa veneta”.
