After the harvest the Prosecco grapes are de-stemmed, soft pressed and fermented in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks. At this point the Prosecco Wine is kept refrigerated (about 39° F.) in big steel tanks until it is the time to do the secondary fermentation that makes it Sparkling. To do that a portion of Prosecco wines is transferred into special steel vats where sugar and selected yeast are added to start the secondary fermentation. After 15/20 days the Prosecco becomes sparkling and it is ready to be bottled.
This Prosecco is a “BRUT” version that means minimum alcohol content 12% vol., the pressure must be above 3 PSI and the residual sugar must be below 16 grams. In Italy Prosecco is considered the perfect aperitif thanks to its dry fruity taste that is a pleasure for the palate and puts in good mood. Prosecco is the friendly wine good for any occasions: to welcome friends at home, to stimulate the appetite before lunch or dinner or just to entertain friends on the side of the swimming pool ! This wine is a good companion to appetizer, poultry, seafood and cheese. Best served chilled, 50° F.
