Varietal Composition: Glera - A grape varietal going back to the ancient Romans. Glera is planted in Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia and was one of the most well known and appreciated grape varietals at the time of the Romans; Livia Drusilla, Augusto’s wife, was one of its greatest fans.

Area of Production/Origin: Hills around Treviso area.

Harvest: Second half of September.

About the Winemaker: Marzio Pol is an Agricultural Expert Specialist in Viticulture and Oenology, who graduated in 1976 after six-year course at the prestigious Wine School of Conegliano (Treviso). His 22 years experience working as a consultant in the field of sparkling and still wines is reflected in the considered production of Divici Prosecco.

Tasting Notes: Pale yellow colour, delicate and complex bouquet with fruity notes that are reminiscent of peach and green apple with an undertone of lemon. Floral notes of acacia and rose flowers combined with a light, spicy Mediterranean bouquet. Fresh and soft on the palate with well balanced acidity.

Vinification: Grapes are carefully selected from the area of origin. The softly pressed must is stored in steel tanks for static cold decanting. Fermentation is made with selected yeasts at a controlled constant temperature of 18°C and is completed in 8-10 days. After settling, the winemaker carefully blends to achieve the Prosecco Spumante basic cuvée. Afterwards the wine is filtered and stored in stainless steel tanks with the addition of sucrose and selected yeasts to begin the second fermentation (Martinotti-Charmat method) at a controlled temperature of 14-15 °C. Once the wine has reached the required pressure levels, alcohol and sugar content, the wine is refrigerated and cold stabilized (-2/-3°C), filtered and then bottled.

Cellaring: 2 years.

Alcohol/ Acidity/ Sugar: 11% Vol. 5,5-6 g/l. 16-17 g/l.

Culinary Suggestions: Ideal as an aperitif, it is the perfect accompaniment to hors-d'oeuvres and delicate first courses. Also wonderful with sushi, fish and shellfish.

Serving Temperature: 8°- 10°C.
