Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso Frizzante – Spago

Technical Sheet

GRAPE VARIETY OR BLEND
100% Glera (Prosecco).

TERROIR AND CLIMATE
The Glera grapes for our Prosecco DOC Treviso are harvested from family-owned vineyards located at the foot of the “Colli Asolani” hills, that stretch from east to west at the northern end of the province of Treviso (Veneto). These vineyards enjoy good sun exposure and benefit from the mild, temperate climate of the area. The typical soil composition of the Asolo area results in a fuller Prosecco with finer bubbles that give the wine a distinctive creamy texture.

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. This stage of the process takes about 30 days, at the end of which the wine has reached a pressure of 2,5 bar. After achieving DOC certification, our Prosecco is finally bottled under pressure and sealed with the traditional the string-tied cork.

TASTING NOTES
Prosecco Frizzante has a gentler fizz than a full sparkling wine (spumante style) making it a lighter, more easy-drinking style. Well-balanced and fruit-forward, it offers a delicious bouquet of green apple and white blossoms that makes way to a crisp, clean mouthfeel.

FOOD PAIRING
Its softness makes it a delicious treat as an aperitif. It can also be served throughout the meal to complement a variety of foods and it proudly represents the perfect everyday bubbly.
