Made from only the finest selection of grapes grown in the ‘DOCG Asolo’ region (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin). Elegant, rich and complex with extra fine, velvety bubbles. Prosecco made for celebrating. 

Pale straw-yellow prosecco with tiny, refined bubbles. The bouquet is rich with fruity and floral notes. Vibrant, zesty acidity and a subtle hint of sweetness balance gracefully on the palate. Round, gentle finish with lingering notes of fresh fruit.

In mid September, the finest Glera grapes from the Asolo region are selected by skilled, third-generation wine-makers. This region produces smaller yields to ensure the utmost quality.

Planted on the hill of the Cornuda estate in 1948, is the oldest section of the vineyard. This area is dedicated to  growing local varieties and ancient clones. Small quantities of these grapes are then blended with the Glera, to enrich this particular DOCG Prosecco with surprising fruity flavours.

After the harvest, the grapes are gently pressed and go through primary fermentation to produce a still wine. The wine gains its bubbles during the secondary fermentation process of the Charmat method.
