Prosecco, produced by Glera grape, which is now considered autochthonous of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene hills in the north-east of Italy where the tradition and the quality of the grapes express the best of its characteristics.  The right exposition, the composition of the soil and particularly the climate create the perfect microclimate which gives and defines a particular personality of the product. The grapes are the result of a careful selection of the bunches which are harvested upon their aromatic ripeness. This enables to obtain the highest freshness. The harvest is handmade and the grapes are immediately transported to the winery. There, a soft pressing of the grapes takes place in order to obtain the free-run juice. The must is then left to settle, after which the fermentation is started thanks to selected yeasts. Once the fermentation has finished, the wine so obtained continues its refinement for additional 2 months. It will then be the base wine for the sparkling wine processing which takes place in pressurised tanks, according to the Charmat method. Food affinities: wine which can be drunk throughout the meal, ideal as aperitif or to accompany the hors d’oeuvres. It can perfectly be served with fried food, simple fish or white meat – based first an main courses, as well. It’s perfect as dessert wine, too, ideal with “panettone” (typical Christmas baked cake) or fruit tarts. Recommended serving temperature: 4 – 6 °C
