Description

Ca’ dei Zago Prosecco Col Fondo DOCG 2020

A beautiful straw yellow with fine effervescence. A pop of the bottle brings about inviting scents of ripe orchard fruit, citrus, bread crust, Alpine herb and a whiff of crushed stone. The refreshing frothy palate delivers lime, tangerine zest, green apple and a hint of lemon drop alongside bright acidity. A mineral note backs up the finish. The perfect embodiment of the Italian aperitivoculture, this wine can be enjoyed with all kinds of food, at any time of day. In Valdobbiadene, the col fondo is often stored standing upright, then decanted into a pitcher, reserving the last bit of sediment-rich wine to be tasted separately.

100% Glera from very old clones, small amounts of Verdiso, Perera, and Bianchetta from own massale selection. Climate is moderate-warm, influenced by the vicinity of both the Alpine Dolomites and the Adriatic Sea. Vineyard faces south, south-west, with an altitude 250m. The soil composition is of clay and limestone

Soft pressing of the grapes, decantation of the must for 24 hours. Fermentation in concrete tanks on the lees for the whole winter season. The wine doesn’t go through other pouring and is decanted in tanks with periodical bâtonnage, in order to keep it homogeneous and let the yeast work. The wine exposure to the winter cold, in addition to the contact with the lees, helps the production of the natural tartaric and protein stability characteristic of the Glera grape.
