Grapes: Glera (Prosecco)
Grape info: Though Glera’s precise origins remain in dispute, its popularity does not. The great majority is used for sparkling and semi-sparkling production in the Veneto region of northeast Italy, most importantly in the DOCG of Conegliano-Valdobbiadene. With enough sun exposure the grapes can develop complex, refined, characteristically light flavours with delicate floral aromatics.
About: Winemaking team Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese meticulously oversee all aspects of production, sourcing grapes from a number of growers and cooperatives with whom they have long standing relationships.
From selected parcels of Glera grapes grown northeast of Treviso, hand-harvested at optimum ripeness. A gentle press followed by a slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks with a second fermentation lasting four weeks.
Tasting note: Fresh and fruity Prosecco with aromas of citrus and green apple. The palate has ripe grapey characters, zesty acidity and a clean, refreshing finish.
Character: Fresh, apples, citrus
