Villa Sandi Il Fresco Rosé
Treviso DOC, Prosecco
Aromas of fresh berries and a hint of spice lead to a palate of crisp acidity and a creamy mouthfeel. This delightful sparkler is dry, fresh and zesty.
Whole Gleragrapes are softly pressed, and the must is stored in controlled temperature tanks after a first racking. The Pinot Noir grapes are pressed and put into tanks where light maceration is carried out in order to extract colors and tannins at a controlled temperature of 22-23°C (72°F). The white must and a small part of the red must are blended before the blend is inoculated with selected yeast cultures. 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.
Located in Northeastern Italy, Villa Sandi Il Fresco Rose grapes come from Treviso, the heart of Prosecco. Treviso consists of 95 municipalities or “villages”. Character of the soil here is influenced by the Piave river and contain a lot of pebbles, stones, sand and some clay. By DOC law, Treviso may only be used if the grapes are harvested and the wine produced and bottled exclusively in the Treviso province.
