Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Spumante Brut
White sparkling wine made from Glera grapes grown on hilly terrain and fermented in tanks according to the Charmat method. The slow process of fermentation at a low temperature (15-16°C / 59-61°F) brings out the characteristics of this grape, resulting in a fine and persistent perlage. Its bouquet demonstrates a wide range of fruity fragrances including hints of green apple, citrus fruits and fresh vegetables accompanied by a pleasing note of bread. The harmonious and lively freshness results in a crisp and dry finish on the palate. This well balanced wine is perfect as an aperitif, ideal with fish dishes, or as in the local tradition, with all courses.
