Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore is a DOCG sparkling wine produced exclusively in the hills of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene zone. The denomination is made up of 15 communes (municipal areas), and takes its name from the zone’s twin capitals: Conegliano, the cultural capital, which is the site of Italy’s first School of Winemaking, and Valdobbiadene, the productive heart of an area of extraordinary vocation and peculiar beauty, with a special vocation for producing high-quality grapes. Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore may be enjoyed in Brut,Extra Dry and Dry versions, classified according to their level of residual sugar.
The spumante can also be classified by its origin: the “Rive” is produced with grapes coming from a single municipality or district of it. In the municipality of Valdobbiadene, in an area of 108 hectares, is produced the Cartizze, the most important expression of the DOCG.
The Extra Brut is the most contemporary version, in line with international trends that go towards an increasingly dry taste. It enhances the vivacity and fruitiness of the grapes and the territory expressiveness. Dry in the mouth and of high intensity, its taste recalls the olfactory sensations.
The Brut is rich in hints of citrus and vegetal notes, accompanied by pleasant notes of bread crust and combined with a beautiful and lively gustatory energy. The perlage has a persistence of taste and cleanliness of the palate, making it the sparkling wine par excellence.
EXTRA DRY (12-17g/l)
This is the version that combines the varietal aroma with the flavor enhanced by the bubbles. The color is a bright straw yellow enlivened by the perlage. The aroma is fresh and rich in scents of fruit, apple, pear, with a hint of citrus fruit that fades into the floral. To the mouth, the wine is soft and dry at the same time, thanks to a well present acidity.
This is the less widespread version, which enhances the floral fruitiness. It has a pale straw yellow color, a delicate and fruity aroma, with hints of citrus, white peach and green apple, and a savory, fresh and soft taste.
