Prosecco Spumante DOC Extra Dry

Floralba has fine bubbles, with a classic Prosecco DOC aromatic nose. The wine is very soft on the palate, offering refreshing acidity with lots of mouth-filling tropical fruit and citrus flavours. This is an enjoyable, everyday drinking wine, ideally served as an aperitif.

Grapes: Glera
Vineyard area: all vineyards are situated on gentle hillside slopes in the Veneto region. Vines are Cordon trained and density is 4-5,000 plants per hectare.

Harvest: The grapes are carefully picked in mid-late September when they reach full maturity but still retaining a high level of acidity that helps to express the freshness and fruitiness typical of Prosecco DOC.

Vinification: The grapes are destemmed and very gently pressed in a pneumatic press. Prior to fermentation the juice is chilled to allow a natural sedimentation of the solids and juice. Selected yeasts are added to initiate fermentation. As soon as the fermentation is finished the wine is racked. The wine is then cooled to prevent malolactic fermentation, in order to retain the fresh aromas.
