Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG represents the top of the qualitative pyramid of the world of Prosecco. The area of the Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin is limited to the small hilly area of the historical production area. These are the vineyards cultivated in the municipalities of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, on very suitable soils, in the pre-Alpine area, where viticulture has been present for centuries. Here the vineyards are all located in the hills, often on steep and steep slopes, which allow only manual processing. The climate is sunny, but always cool and characterized by significant temperature variations between day and night, which favor the maturation of grapes with rich and intense aromatic profiles. Valdobbiadene represents the excellence of this territory and produces wines that have nothing to do with the Prosecco DOC grown in the plains, often the result of very high yields and fully mechanized agriculture.
The Bortolomiol company has been growing grapes in Valdobbiadene since 1700 and still works in the wake of a centuries-old tradition, to preserve the values of the history of this splendid area intact. Only in this way have wines to the present day come that tell us about traditions, passion for work and respect for the land. The grapes used to produce the Millesimato Senior come from a selection of the best vineyards cultivated in Valdobbiadene. After the first white vinification, the base wine undergoes the second fermentation in an autoclave to acquire the characteristic perlage.
In the glass it has a beautiful bright straw yellow color with slight greenish reflections. The nose opens with delicate floral notes, accompanied by fresh aromas of white fruit. The sip is lively, fresh and harmonious, characterized by an immediate pleasant taste, with juicy and rich fruit, well balanced acidity and a savory finish. The Extra Dry dosage represents the tradition of Prosecco Superiore di Valdobbiadene. The slight sugary residue compensates for the lively acidity of the wine, giving grace and roundness.
It is ideal to be enjoyed at the time of the aperitif, with delicate appetizers, with first courses based on vegetables or with a mixed fried fish.
