The Grave Friulana is a particularly suitable area for the cultivation of the “Glera” vine and therefore it was included in the appellation of origin (Prosecco DOC). Its stony and loose soil, the significant temperature shifts and the ventilated microclimate, make the grapes express their unique characteristics and, together with a careful vinification, result in an elegant Prosecco. In the glass you will find a surprising fine perlage, a fruity and fresh bouquet enriched with mineral notes. The sip is delicate and creamy and recalls the same scents you perceived on the nose. The finish is long, pleasantly sapid and mineral.download information
