Only made in a few thousand bottles per vintage, this sparkling wine made with Bianchetta Trevigiana
grapes grown in the Asolo DOCG region, is a Prosecco col Fondo even though it cannot be called Prosecco. For a sparkling wine to be called Prosecco
, according to the DOC/DOCG regulation, the wine must be made with Glera grapes. The Bianchetta trevigiana was one of the grapes allowed in the production of the sparkling wine before it become protected.
Made following the "ancestrale" method of Prosecco, the ancient method developed by the Romans, this sparkling wine is produced fermenting the juice with its own yeast first in barriques and then steel tanks. After the fermentation, the wine goes through a maturation of 5 months in the tank followed by at least another 9 months in the bottle. Only then, it is released without the “dégorgement”, leaving the yeasts in the bottle, giving the wine a more complex nose.
This is a fantastic Prosecco col Fondo, cloudy, light, dry, refreshing with a nose of apple, thymus and wild herbs, delicate, elegant. Allow the wine to settle in the bottle for an hour or so before opening it up. This sparkling wine is the perfect accompaniment for cold cuts and appetizers.
Tenuta Amadio is located in Monfumo, in the heart of the Asolo hills and it is divided into three separate vineyards: Vigneto del Biss, Vigneto del Longon and Vigneto Era Grande, each one with their own characteristics for a total of 12 hectares.
Tenuta Amadio follows a sustainable approach, they believe it is important to preserve the nature in order to hand it on to the next generations in the same condition they inherited and this approach allows them to have perfect grapes that are then manually harvested and immediately taken to the winery to preserve their integrity and obtain fantastic wines using a very modern winery.
