Average Production 1.5 kg per vine-stock corresponding to 600/700 kg per hectare. Vine Variety: aromatic variety typical from Treviso province. Breeding System: Sylvoz. TECHNOLOGY The grapes are picked a few days before their full ripeness so that they have lower sugar content, higher acidity and a more fruity bouquet. Traditional vinification with soft pressing and partial cold maceration. The must is then kept at 0°C and used to produce various lots of sparkling wine during the year. The fermentation is performed at about 10/12°C with select yeast and guarantees highly aromatic and intense scents. While the must is in full fermentation, it is moved to the autoclave for the foam formation so as to turn it into a finished sparkling wine through a single fermentation at low temperature over a period of 35/40 days. This aims at strengthening and developing the aromatic component that is very special and characterises this sparkling wine. The low temperature fermentation causes the formation of substances that build the structure and convey importance to the wine, so as to compensate for the low alcohol content and obtain a perfectly harmonious taste. At the end of the foam formation, the sparkling wine is kept on its noble lees for 30/40 days to complete and enrich its organoleptic characteristics. Before being bottled, a small percentage of must of fine aromatic grapes is added to the sparkling wine to complete the taste and bouquet of the product and strike a perfect balance between them. ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS Perlage: very fine and persistent. Colour: straw yellow with greenish reflections.

Varietal: Brut

Region: Venezie

Region Description:

Venezie is the region which encompasses three regions; Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige, Fruili-Venezia Giulia. The climate in this region is influenced by the Alps which the Venezie vineyards are on the sunny side. Growing conditions in the region range from cool at high altitudes to warm near the Adriatic Sea and along the valley of the rivers that flow though it. Although the culture of the Venezie, like the name, was determined by the ancient Venetian Republic, strong influences can be felt other nations that have come and gone from the area. This resulted is an assortment of domestic and imported grape varieties. This array of vines allow for fine whites and reds ranging from the young and simple to the aged and complex.
