Ca' di Alte Prosecco Frizzante wine is a delicate pale straw in colour, the nose is vibrant and fresh with aromas of Williams pear. The palate is fresh and fruity with a delicate mousse, finishing with a hint of sweetness.
The vineyards are located in the hills and are south-west facing. The hillside sites experience cooler nights, allowing the aromatic compounds of the grapes to develop. Vines are trained using the Guyot and Sylvoz systems and are planted to a density of 3,500 to 4,000 vines per hectare. The soil is calcareous and of volcanic origin.
Following fine weather conditions, the maturation of the Glera grapes was regular and the fruit was picked in an excellent condition. The harvest took place in late September.
The grapes were harvested, de-stemmed and crushed. A cool, slow and temperature controlled fermentation then followed in stainless steel.
