Asolo Prosecco DOCG

Asolo Prosecco DOCG Italy

$19.95

The Asolo Prosecco DOCG is a white wine that has become very popular both in Italy and abroad, thanks to its drinkability and pleasantness of the bubbles combined with floral and fruity character. The production area is entirely in the province of Treviso, and more precisely in the Montello hill and the hills around Asolo. It is vinified from grapes Glera, a semi-aromatic variety, with the addition of other local grapes like Bianchetta, Perera and Verdiso. The most famous and popular version is the Prosecco sparkling wine, produced from base wines and sparkled in stainless steel tanks using the Martinotti-Charmat method, that allows to better express the typical floral and fruity notes. Prosecco is also produced in the still version. Important is the zoning of the vineyards that many manufacturers are also highlighting in the label with the words “Rive”. It indicates a particular vineyard that, thanks to its exposure and substrate, gives very high quality wines. The Asolo Prosecco is sold indicating the residual sugar in it. Beside the traditional “Extra-dry”, the versions “Dry” and the modern and international “Brut” are now popular. Wine Tasting Notes The sparkling Asolo Prosecco appears pale yellow with a fine and persistent perlage. The nose is intense with strong floral and fruity aromatic notes. The palate is pleasant, dry or slightly sweet (depending on the version), with a long finish.

TECHNICAL NOTES
VINIFICATION
Soon after a light pressing, the must is placed in a very low temperature autoclave to initiate a very, very slow fermentation process. Thereby only indigenous yeasts are used and there is no addition of sugars. This slow, low-temperature fermentation lasts over 9 months and it creates an extremely fine and elegant perlage, endowing this spumante with its extraordinary creaminess.

Wine has been produced on the Conte Loredan Gasparini estate since the 1300s and was even been praised by historian Bonifacio in 1590. Its original founder planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbech vines which are still there today and produce Conte Loredan Gasparini’s esteemed quality wines. Their famous “Capo di Stato”, has been included in a French publication entitled “100 vins de légende” as one of the 100 wines in the world that, for its history and venerable quality, can be unanimously considered as legendary. The company’s whites are also glorious, worthly placed besides a Prosecco Superiore, coming directly from the vineyards of the ASOLO DOCG area, with its distinguished body and notorious quality. Loredan Gasparini built a cellar for aging wines, which today is completely modernized and integrated with French oak barriques (Nevers, Tronçaisand Allier) and Slovenian oak, which were added to the traditional casks of 25 hectoliters volume (660 gallons) for the aging of wines.
