Vineyard & Vinification Note
The vineyards cover several terroirs within the DOC Friuli Aquileia and DOC Friuli Colli Orientali areas. The DOC Friuli Aquileia territory is blessed by a unique and favourable microclimate due to its geographical position: the Julian Alps in the background protect the vines from the cold winds of the north, and the Adriatic sea in front of them considerably lowers the temperatures that reach below zero in some short periods of the year.
The area of the DOC Friuli Colli Orientali includes the range of hill in the Province of Udine, where there are particular pedoclimatic conditions. In these areas, the vines have adapted well, producing excellent quality results.
Winemaking:Soft crushing of the bunches must clarification by settling at low temperature and fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Suitable blending and formation of the cuvée used to produce Prosecco Rosé. Secondary fermentation in pressurised vat with selected yeasts at 16-17°C and holding in vat. Bottling and left to age in a conditioned warehouse.
