Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso Spumante 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
180 q/ha. Estimated yield per plant: 7-8 kg.

WINEMAKING
The destemmed grapes are loaded into our press where we slowly and softly press out a beautifully fresh juice. The juice is then fermented for about 10 days at low-temperature in a stainless steel tank to preserve 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 DOC certification, our Prosecco is finally bottled under pressure, to preserve the bubbles, using our state-of-the-art bottling line.
