Le Fade Prosecco Superiore di Conegliano Valdobbiadene

Located at 250 meters above the sea level, the vineyards producing the local hero Glera are planted on rich clay sandy soils, mixed with some gravel.

5% each of Verdiso and Bianchetta helps this subtle Prosecco to achieve more complexity both on the nose (with the typical golden apple fragrance) and on the palate. Verdiso, more specifically, is a relative higher elevation white grape that provides the perfect acidity.

Utilizing the Charmat-Martinotti method, the grapes are picked, pressed and vinified in stainless steel tanks. After the initial fermentation, the wine undergoes the following spring a to a secondary fermentation in the tank and then bottled to preserve its fresh expression and creaminess. Great partner for sushi and shellfish, but obviously really enjoyable as an aperitivo wine. 11%AbV. – 14 gr/lt of RS.
