Prosecco Superiore DOCG Morgante

Prosecco di Valdobbiadene extra dry

While Prosecco might have a reputation of cheap and easy-drinking bubbles compared to Champagne, the upper ranks of this sparkling wine offer a complex and enjoyable experience. DOCG is Prosecco's 'Grand Cru'. This Prosecco DOCG made from grapes picked from vineyards a stone’s throw from the village of Conegliano are made into wine via the Charmat sparkling method, which gives wines approximately 3 atmospheres of pressure. This Prosecco combines fine bubbles, a great body and acidity, and all the elegance that their steep, chalky-rich soil vineyards provide.

This higher-end Prosecco Morgante is made in extra dry style with a residual sugar content of 17 g/l offering enticing aromas of crunchy green apple, ripe pear, nectarine, almond, white blossoms, and mineral notes. On the palate is crisp and bright with medium body and a creamy foam texture. It is nicely balanced with a long, satisfying finish.

Prosecco is surprisingly versatile and pairs well with a wide range of cuisines and dishes. The Prosecco Morgante extra dry is a super food-friendly sparkling wine that goes great with fruit-driven appetizers (like prosciutto-wrapped melon), and cured meats. Thanks to its sweet aromatic bubbles, this Prosecco matches well with Asian food. Try Prosecco Morgante extra dry with Pad Thai for a great pairing!

All grapes come from the estate’s vineyards and are planted among natural wooded and meadow areas, and alongside olive groves and shrubs. The oldest vines are cultivated with the Sylvoz training system (density 4,000 vines per hectare) whereas the new ones with a bilateral Guyot training system (density 3,000-3,500 vines per hectare) on higly calcareous soils, with marls mingled with conglomerates and gravels.

 

 

The grapes are carefully selected and manually harvested. The wine is made according to the Charmat method with controlled temperature fermentation at 16-17°C for 25/30 days.
