The Glera grape used to produce “Prosecco Superiore DOCG” (Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin) originates from and extends over 4500 hectares of land between the town of Valdobbiadene, to the west, and Conegliano to the east. The vineyards are situated at the foot of the Treviso Alpine Foothills, at an altitude of between 50 and 500 metres above sea level. The grapes used for our Spumante DOCG wines come from the Valdobbiadene and Conegliano region.
THE PROSECCO, THE DOCG AREA
The unique conformity of the land, gifted with a good temperature range between day and night, lends the prosecco grape the organoleptic characteristics that give it its exclusive aroma and fragrance. Thanks to its rich sugar content, this type of grape is the perfect base for sparkling wines.
All our grapes are rigorously handpicked, boxed and taken to the wine cellar as quickly as possible, in order to avoid compromising the fruit’s integrity. Approximately 10 hectares of land are worked in order to obtain a grape that is qualified for its fresh and floral perfume which, when transferred to the bottle, restores its natural, native characteristics. The ‘Prosecco Superiore’, in its most classic sparkling version, has for years received a favourable response from consumers around the world. The secret behind its increasing success is found in the product’s particular characteristics: for example, its striking versatility. Ideal for celebrating important events, or more simply sipped while relaxing with friends, Prosecco Superiore, proposed in the more modern ‘Brut’ version or in the more classic ‘Extra Dry’ version, is wonderful as an aperitif and in cocktails as well as for fish dishes or light lunches or dinners. It is also the perfect accompaniment to cold meats and cheeses, with ‘Made in Italy’ cuisine and also many examples of international cuisine. Thanks to its moderate alcohol level (11% vol.) and intriguing fruity and mineral aromas, a correctly-chilled Prosecco Superiore is suitable for every occasion and is the perfect alternative to other more formal and demanding wines.
