  4. Extra Dry Prosecco Superiore Dry DOCG

Made from perfectly ripe, hand-harvested Glera grapes from the hilly part of Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG. The first fermentation, using selected yeasts, develops aromas of apricots, pears, and wild flowers. The intense, fruity aromas are preserved through the second fermentation, which takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel containers.  

Tasting Notes

Bright straw-yellow in color with an elegant and finely textured perlage, Extra Dry offers layered aromas of orange blossoms, lemongrass, peaches, and tropical fruits. Rich and silky on the palate, the fruity notes are well-integrated with the structure and the wine finishes with refreshing acidity and persistent perlage.

Food Pairing

This versatile wine can be served as an aperitif and also pairs well with fish dishes, white meats, mild cheeses, and slightly spicy foods.
