GRAPE VARIETY OR BLEND
100% Glera

TERROIR AND CLIMATE
Asolo Prosecco DOCG superiore is a small subregion located within the larger DOC area, centred around the charming village of Asolo and the foothills knows as “Colli Asolani”. Planted on the slope of the hills at about 150m above sea level, our family-owned vineyards have good sun exposure and enjoy mild temperatures. The soil composition is rich with large percentages of clay, resulting in a full bodied, very elegant sparkling wine with distinctive tiny and velvety bubbles.

YIELD
13,5 tons/ha. Estimated yield per plant: 5-6 kg.

WINEMAKING
The grapes are destemmed and soft pressed, suspended solids are separated from grape juice using flotation. The juice is then racked into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Low temperature during this 10-15 days-long process is key to preserving the fresh fruit flavors that are typical from the Glera variety. Secondary fermentation (the phase during which the still, base wine is transformed into a sparkling wine) is achieved through the Martinotti-Charmat method: we introduce the still wine into pressurised stainless-steel tanks along with selected yeasts and sugar which stimulate the production of natural bubbles of carbon dioxide in the wine. After achieving DOCG certification, our Asolo Prosecco is finally bottled under pressure, to preserve the bubbles, using our state-of-the-art bottling line.

TASTING NOTES
Bright, light straw in colour, with a delicate, persistent foam and a fine-grained perlage. On the nose it displays an elegant bouquet with typical notes of green apple, lychee and white blossoms. Well balanced, crisp and refreshing on the palate with some apple notes which carry through to a pleasant, lingering finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Thanks to the lower residual sugar, this Prosecco superiore is suitable for many occasions. Easy drinking and elegantly refreshing, it is excellent with seafood, appetizers and light meals but it is also delicious on its own as an aperitif.
