- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Botter can draw on traditions dating back almost a hundred years. It has passed through the careful hands of three generations for whom wine was a passion as well as a trade. They have responded to the constantly evolving market over time, in a process of ongoing expansion. The company was founded by Carlo Botter in 1928 as a small business selling local Veneto wines in barrels and demijohns. It took its first major step forward with the arrival of the second generation of the family. After the Second World War, brothers Arnaldo and Enzo began selling wine in bottles. They boosted the company’s presence on the Italian market and – most importantly – they began a constant process of expansion in other countries, which would become the company’s main source of income. Today Botter is one of the largest producers and exporters of Italian wines. 1 out of 35 bottles of Italian wine exported to the world is produced by Botter.
WINEMAKING: The soft pressed must is stored in steel tanks for the static cold decanting. The fermentation with selected yeasts is made at a controlled constant temperature of 18 °C and is completed in 8-10 days. After a storage period, the winemaker studies a skilled coupage to achieve the Prosecco Frizzante basic cuvée. Afterwards the wine is filtered and stored in steel tanks with the addition rectified concentrated must, and selected yeasts for the second fermentation (Martinotti-Charmat method) at a controlled temperature of 14-15 °C. Once the wine has reached the required pressure levels, alcohol and sugar content, the wine is refrigerated and cold stabilized, filtered and controlled before bottling.
TASTING NOTES: Pale light yellow colour, delicate and complex bouquet with fruity notes that remind of peach, green apple with second notes of acacia and wisteria. Fresh and light on the palate, with balanced acidity and body; harmonious with a long persistent aftertaste. Serve as an aperitif, with starters or fish.
