Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso Brut

Technical Sheet

GRAPE VARIETY OR BLEND
100% Glera.

TERROIR AND CLIMATE
The Glera grapes for our Prosecco DOC Treviso spumante brut are harvested from family-owned vineyards located at the foot of the hills called “Colli Asolani” (within the province of Treviso, Veneto). These vineyards are at an altitude of about 150mt above sea level, have good sun exposure and benefit from the mild, temperate climate of the area. The soil composition is a balanced combination of silt, clay and sand.

YIELD
18 tons/ha. Estimated yield per plant: 7-8 kg.

WINEMAKING
The destemmed grapes are soft pressed and the juice is fermented at low temperature in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruit flavors that are typical from the Glera variety. After about 10 days the wine has achieved a sufficient, yet low alcohol content and the primary fermentation is complete. Bubbles are developed naturally during the secondary fermentation, according to the Martinotti-Charmat method. We introduce the base 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. At the end of the process the wine is left with a very low residual sugar. After achieving DOC certification, the Prosecco is bottled under pressure to preserve the bubbles, using our state-of-the-art bottling line.

TASTING NOTES
Bright straw colour with greenish hues, with a creamy foam and a fine, persistent perlage. Fruity fragrance of crunchy pear and green apple, with intriguing Mediterranean spices and floral nuances. The taste is harmoniously balanced with a dry undertone, thanks to a well presented acidity.

FOOD PAIRING
Very versatile and drinkable, Prosecco brut is great as an aperitif wine with canapés and goes superbly well with Parma ham and all sorts of delicate cheeses. Try it also with seafood and vegetable-based dim sum, prawn toasts or seafood dumplings.
