TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Luscious and aromatic, our meticulously hand-harvested Glera grapes are grown on the steepest hills of Valdobbiadene, a town synonymous with the finest Prosecco Superiore, and DOCG status. The Cuvée (base wine) is fermented with selected yeast at precisely controlled temperatures to preserve full, complex flavors. Once fermented, the wine rests with its lees for three more months so that its full aromatic potential and vibrant taste can truly come together.
