Della Vite Prosecco Superiore DOCG
PRODUCER: Founded by the Delavigne sisters, Della Vite sets out to show the full potential of what premium Prosecco can be. The wine is produced by a family who have practised their trade for three generations in the Prosecco region. Solar energy mostly powers Della Vite's production, and filtration is undertaken using no animal agents, but a ceramic system meaning that the wines are certified vegan.
VINEYARD: Beneath the Dolomite mountains, the hills of Valdobbiadene are alive with the local culture, knowledge and passion for making Prosecco. A region of quiet valleys and dramatic skylines, Glera grapes have been grown here since Roman times. At the heart of artisanal Italian wine culture, much of the area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, selected for conservation for its cultural and environmental significance. This means our winery’s sustainability is continually monitored.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are hand harvested and fermented in the charmat method using yeats specifically developed on-site at the winery. The second fermentation takes place in tank over a 60 day period giving the wine a much finer mouse and a more complex flavour profile than one might usually expect from a prosecco.
TASTING NOTES: Rich and extra-dry with a highly mineral palate that lingers, our Prosecco Superiore DOCG is characterised by hints of crostini and chamomile. Delicious when paired with nocellara olives and figs with honey.
