DOC Venezia area ranges from the foothills in the Province of Treviso to the Adriatic Sea in the Province of Venice, namely from Conegliano
hills to Caorle lagoon. Thanks to the protection of the Dolomites in the North and to the proximity with sea and lagoon, it is characterized
by a temperate-humid climate. The soil is made of alluvial material originated from Alpine and pre-Alpine glacier melting and carried by
Piave and Livenza rivers. In the high plain, the high concentration of pebbles and gravel results in a light, draining soil with moderate fertility,
creating ideal conditions for viticulture. This area originates the high quality grapes used to produce this sparkling wine.
> The grapes of the three varieties of this blend are generally harvested around mid-September.
> Grapes are quickly carried to the winery to preserve their quality and avoid possible alterations that may result from mechanical
damages, premature oxidation, microbial contamination or sun exposure.
> Grapes are then destemmed and softly pressed to separate the skins form the must, which is finally cleaned through decantation.
> The first fermentation occurs in steel tanks with the addition of selected yeasts.
> In accordance to the Martinotti method, the second fermentation occurs in cuve close at a controlled temperature of 14°C, to preserve the primary aromas of the grapes. When sugar turns into alcohol, the yeasts naturally release carbon dioxide, making the wine “sparkling”.
> The wine is then cold stabilized, filtered and bottled.
