Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut
Prosecco di Valdobbiadene brut
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 brut style with a residual sugar content of 10 g/l. A brut Prosecco is drier than an extra dry Prosecco and has a lovely crisp acidity making it better suited to main courses and ingredients such as fresh fish.
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.
Pale straw yellow in colour with greenish highlights. It has intense, fruity aroma of apple and citrus fruits. On the palate this prosecco has a pleasant acidity and a fresh flavour. Fine and persistent bubbles.
