Sparkling wine produced in the D.O.C. region, Brut
Prosecco is a typical wine of the Veneto region. The production area extends in the province of Treviso in the DOC area of Prosecco including the hills of morainic origin and the plain with medium-textured soils of alluvial origin.
Single espalier, double canopy and radiating systems with 2300 vines per hectare.
Maximum 180 quintals of grapes.
Added with yeast cultures selected by Villa Sandi, the must is then put into vessels where fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 15-16°C to enhance all the harvest fragrances. Upon reaching the required alcohol and sugar content fermentation is stopped by refrigeration. After a short settling period the sparkling wine is ready for bottling.
The whole grapes are put into the pneumatic press for soft pressing and the resulting must, after a first racking, is put into controlled temperature tanks where it remains until it is used for the production of the sparkling wine.
An excellent aperitiv to accompany savouries. Ideal with steamed shellfish
