TERROIR AND CLIMATE
Our Prosecco DOC Treviso spumante extra dry is made from grapes that come from medium-young vineyards, located at the foot of the hills that surround the medieval town of Asolo (the so-called “Colli Asolani”, altitude: 150mt above sea level). These vineyards 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.
VINE TRAINING SYSTEM
Sylvoz training system, bilateral trained cordons.
180 q/ha. Estimated yield per plant: 7-8 kg.
The grapes are gently pressed and the must, immediately separated to avoid skin contact, is then left to ferment at controlled temperature, allowing elegant aromas to develop. The primary fermentation lasts for 10 days and takes place in stainless steel pressure tanks. The wine then rests in the autoclaves up to the time of the refermentation. The secondary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts, following the Martinotti-Charmat process. After being bottled under pressure, the wine rests in the bottle for 30 days before being released for sale.
Not suitable for ageing. Store vertically in a dry and fresh place, away from sunlight.
