Grape Varieties :
The grapes are harvested from hillside vineyards in the Veneto region. Soft pressing on arrival at the winery and a slow fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel takes place. The wine is then filtered and the secondary fermentation process starts using the 'charmat' method in pressurised stainless steel tanks (autoclaves). In order to achieve the right balance of flavour, aroma, elegance, consistency and fine perlage. The wine is kept in tank from between 20 days to 3 months.
Prosecco or Glera is a white wine grape variety used to make sparkling wine. Prosecco is also a region located in the Veneto in northwest Italy. Most Prosecco wines are meant to be enjoyed young and fresh.
'Spumante' simply means 'Sparkling Wine' in Italian. Confusingly 'Extra Dry' actually denotes an off-dry style and means the wine retains 12-17 grams per litre of residual sugar.
