Cantine Maschio - Prosecco Extra Dry DOC Made with Organic Grapes (NV)
Terroir: The Prosecco region is situated between the Adriatic Sea and the foothills of the Italian Alps. Sandwiched between mountains and sea, the hilly vineyards of the region enjoy a temperate climate and elevated rainfall, which favors the production of the Glera grape. The vineyards are certified organic by the CCPB.
Vinification: Gentle pressing of the grapes to extract only the free-run juice from the heart of the berry. Then the juice is left to rest in stainless steel tanks for approximately 12 hours and then fermentation begins. Vinification in stainless takes about 15-20 days at 18-20 °C (65-68 °F) to develop a natural perlage.
