Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Rive di Refrontolo Brut DOCG Santa Margherita
For the production of this wonderful Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG prosecco Rive di Refrontolo Brut the wine company Santa Margherita put the cuvee in autoclave to re-ferment at 13°C. The low temperature is kept to preserve the aromatic potential of the basic wine. In around one month it achieves the desired conditions of over-pressure and sugars, and so it remains in autoclave on yeasts for about three months before being bottled. The production is made by Glera grapes coming from the DOCG Refrontolo area in the Mire hamlet in the Treviso province. The soils are located at 200-250 meters above the sea level and they have moraine origins with a good friability and clay presence. The cultivation method is the typical of the Valdobbiadene which is the Sylvoz one. The density is 4000 trees per hectare.
