Villa Sandi Superiore Prosecco DOCG
Valdobbiadene DOCG, Prosecco
Golden apple, stone fruit and honey aromas, and flavors are balanced by lively acidity and a mouthwatering finish.
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 short settling period, the sparkling wine is ready for bottling.

The area D.O.C.G. Conegliano-Valdobbiadenelies in hilly countryside situated 50 km north of Venice and around 100 km south of the Dolomites. Here vinegrowing has extremely ancient origins, but the first written document linking Prosecco to this area dates back to 1772. Ever since the introduction of the D.O.C.G. in 1969, the historic production area has remained limited to just 15 municipalities. These hillside vineyard soils are a mix of sand, limestone, clay and calcareous.
