Montelliana Prosecco Valdobbiadene
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This sparkling wine with a fine, persistent perlage is obtained from grapes harvested exclusively in the DOCG area of Valdobbiadene.
Varietal Composition: 100% Glera
Elaboration: Sparkling wine made by natural fermentation with the Charmat method.
Tasting Notes: Pale straw-yellow with greenish highlights, it has a typical fruity bouquet and a distinctive, pleasant and mildly sweet taste. Pleasantly lightweight and low in alcohol, a versatile wine to start and finish a meal, or add a little sparkle at any time of the day.
At the foot of Coilli Asolani stands Cantina Montelliana, a cooperative of 400 growers focused on the production of Prosecco, and a known regional leader in the Asolo category. The company was founded in the mid 1950’s, and member holdings amount to 650 hectares of vineyard land. This is one of the most impressive cooperatives we’ve come across in Italy in terms of the engagement and passion of its member/growers, and also in terms of the unusually high quality of its finished products.
