Prosecco Brut Millesimato

REDENTORE Prosecco Brut Millesimato has a straw yellow colour brightened by a fine and persistent perlage. It presents an apple and a pear aroma, with candied citrus fruit and jasmine hints. Excellent for an aperitif, ideal with appetizers, pasta, fresh cheeses, ham and salami. We suggest to serve it at 5-6°C.

Grapes

100% Glera.

Production Area

In the DOC Prosecco area, north-east of Italy.

Soil

It has the ideal structure for vine growing, with a high percentage of clay. It is particularly rich in tufa, which characterizes the wine.

Climate

Mild. There are wide changes of temperature between day and night ideal for the preservation of the aroma and the acidity of the grapes.

Density of the plantation and training system

3.000-5.000 vines per hectare trained with "cappuccina" system.

Vineyard management

To obtain a perfect ripening of the grapes, beyond the normal vineyard management, we carry out summer pruning and careful leaf thinning. Furthermore, the yield is kept very low in order to produce grapes rich in body and aroma.

Harvest

Beginning of September.

Vinification

Destemming and crashing of the grapes, cold skin contact, soft pressing, cool static clarification and fermentation exclusively with wild yeasts in stainless steel vats at 18°C. Then the wine matures on its noble lees in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The lees are frequently mixed (battonage) in order to increase the thickness and the smoothness of the wine.

Second fermentation

The second fermentation is carried out with the "Italian method" in pressured tanks.

Alcohol

11% by vol.
