Villa Sandi Il Fresco Brut Prosecco DOC
Treviso DOC, Prosecco
Aromas of ripe golden apples, acacia, and honeysuckle are exhibited on the nose. On the palate, the wine is dry, fresh and fruit-driven with citrus and stone-fruit flavors.
Whole grapes are softly pressed, and the must is stored in controlled temperature tanks after a first racking. It is then inoculated with selected yeast cultures, and fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 15-16°C (60°F). Upon reaching the required alcohol and sugar content, fermentation is stopped by refrigeration. After a two month period on lees, the sparkling wine is ready for bottling.
