Prosecco Tranquillo

Prosecco DOC Treviso

Our local winemaking traditions have always included non-sparkling versions of Prosecco as well, which exhibit only the faintest effervescence, barely noticeable on the palate. This is the wine that we enjoy with our meals, or as an aperitif, along with few slices of salame or a piece of cheese. We make such a wine from our own glera grapes, usually from younger vineyards. Its hallmarks are a pale, but luminous straw yellow, and an intense, clean-edged bouquet redolent with fruit, which continues onto the palate, where a tasty hint of bitter almond beautifully marries with crisp apple and pear.

VINEYARD The vineyards, planted to a density of some 4,000 vines per hectare and trained to the Sylvoz system, are planted in limestone-clay soils. The grapes are picked exclusively by hand, in the second half of September.

VINIFICATION After the clusters are de-stemmed and the grapes gently pressed, the must is gravity-settled then fermented in steel. After maturing sur lie, the wine briefly re-ferments before bottling, which gives it just a touch of CO2 and its slight spritziness.

GLASS AND SERVICE Enjoy at 8-10°C in a glass for young white wines.

FOOD PAIRING AND WHEN TO ENJOY Enjoy with a wide range of first courses, and with main courses of poultry, veal, and fish. It is perfect as an aperitif wine, alongside fresh cheeses, Veneto salame and prosciutto. It can be enjoyed during the year following harvest, but it will become more complex during the following year.
