Spumante Extra Dry
Grapes Glera (Prosecco) and local varieties
Beautifully lush and velvety perlage, lifting ripe lemon fruit, mint, apple with a hint of mango. All in all, an alarmingly drinkable fizz. 11.5% alc.
Glera is the main part of this Cuvée. The reason that it is not classified as Prosecco is the winemaker likes total freedom when making this wine. Sometimes the cuvee is 100% Glera (2019) abd other times it has Chardonnay, Garganega or Pinot Bianco included - it all depends on the quality of the grapes available.
This is a classic Venetian spumante, the blend reflects the best the vintage has to offer. The grapes are pressed softly and the first fermentation is in temperature controlled steel tanks. The cuvée is made prior to the second fermentation, which is in an autoclave and takes just over fifty days. The wine is then filtered and cold stabilised before bottling.
