The Asolo Prosecco Superiore comes from low yielding parcels of vines from the Asolo hills – one of the two top quality designated production zones for Prosecco. Asolo covers only one sixth the area of Valdobbiadene Conegliano and although it has a potential production of under one fifth of its larger sibling with actual production under 2% by volume. Farmed organically the grapes undergo a partial maceration and are then fermented incredibly slowly to protect the structure and aromatics of the grapes. It is full of aromas of white pepper, apple and white fruits.
"An inviting bouquet of lemon oil, sage and fresh pears, balancing richness with a mineral-cut precision. The finale is more savory than sweet, with a salty flourish and hints of melon. Consider me a fan. 90/100" – Eric Guido, Vinous Dec 2021
