Salvatore Principe Prosecco
“Fairly dry, but lively. A fun sparkling to share with friends.”
The Wine Connection, December 2011
This Prosecco has very fine and persistent bubbles with floral aromas, peaches, nectarines and Golden Delicious apples. It is fresh and lively on the palate.
The fruit is sourced from the rolling hills of Veneto just north of Venice. The vineyards are oriented north-south and west-east each averaging vine 8 to 12 years in age. The grapes are harvested by hand. A soft pressing occurs and the juice is placed in stainless steel tanks for a brief cold maceration. Before the primary fermentation process is concluded, the wine is run into a pressurized tank where a secondary fermentation takes place allowing it to become a sparkling wine. After bottling the wine is bottle aged for over 6 weeks before being released.
