Tasting Notes

This gently semi-sparkling Prosecco, which is a bright, straw-yellow color, offers the same delicate, aromatic, and fresh aromas as traditional Prosecco. Hints of bread, oranges, and lemons, but in a gentler ‘Frizzante’ style. 


Cultivation

Sourced in Northern Italy, the grapes used to make this Prosecco are both hand and machine-picked in September.


Vinification

The wine is the result of destemming, traditional pressing and an 8-day fermentation at 16°C-19°C in 300-600 hl tanks. This is followed by a second fermentation which lasts for 30 days. The wine is then stored in stainless steel tanks for up to 6 months until it bottled at a pressure < 2 bar with 13 g/l of residual sugar and total acidity of 5.70 g/l
