Maschio dei Cavalieri Rive Di Colbertaldo Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG 2018

Cantine Maschio

Terroir: Valdobbiadene Prosecco is renowned for its great finesse and its rich bouquet of fruit and floral aromas. Rive wines refer to specific hills within the prestigious Valdobbiadene zone. The Rive di Colbertaldo sits at 1,150 ft above sea level just southeast of the town of Valdobbiadene. This rive enjoys greater fluctuations in day and night temperatures than other parts of the appellation, creating a unique microclimate that is expressed in the final wine.

Vinification: Grapes from this steep vineyard are hand-harvested to ensure only the best grapes from the subzone go into this wine. The grapes are gently pressed to maintain their natural characteristics. Cold maceration of the must in contact with skins to obtain aromatic features from the skins. Temperature-controlled fermentation using the charmat method. This wine undergoes the long charmat method and is not released until the March after the harvest, giving the final wine a finer perlage, greater structure, and a more pronounced bouquet.
