Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Frizzante DOCG (Sur Lie)
An ancient tradition, imprinted in sixty year old vines, has inspired this slightly sparkling Prosecco, produced with the secondary fermentation in the bottle (sur lie). In the heart of the family vineyards, Benedetto has found an authentic expression of Glera and its land, and with several innovative elements has created a wine that surprises the palate with its delicate aromas, soft flavour and complexity.
Appearance: straw yellow, with a fine and creamy perlage.
Aroma: the characteristic hint of “bread crust” unites with fresh and fruity notes, typical of Prosecco at the end of fermentation.
Palate: initial soft fruity flavors combine with a hint of yeast, leaving room for a dry and pleasantly bitter taste. In sum, the flavor is generous and well balanced.
The abundance of typical fruity notes of Prosecco and aroma of bred crust offer the perfect wine for every informal occasion. At the table, it is best served as an aperitif or with appetizers but it can be appreciated with risotto or seafood.
Pour the wine slowly into a pitcher, without disturbing the lees at the bottom of the bottle to maintain a clear wine before serving it in the glass. The best time to enjoy is from July to December, the year after the harvest, but it can be consumed with satisfaction also after a few years.
