Prosecco Superiore DOCG Long Charmat Brut N/V

Made with passion, expertise, and patience, Zardetto Long Charmat DOCG is a premium Prosecco made from the most prestigious vineyards in the Conegliano Valdobbiadene area. Zardetto chooses the best selection of grapes, harvested at full maturity.

Wine Production

Once the grapes are selected, they are cooled, pressed, and kept in contact with the skin for two hours.  After a second fermentation of 40 days, the wine is kept on the lees for approximately six months, bottled and rested two to three more months before release.

Tasting Notes

This Prosecco has a brilliant straw yellow color, a sensual foam, and a refined perlage. Aromas of rich citrus, apple, and a hint of herbaceous mint, mingle with an intriguing bread crust note. On the palate, the structure is elegant, with firm acidity, savory minerality, velvety texture, and a long, creamy finish.  

Food Pairing

Ideal as an aperitif and also pairs brilliantly with sushi, ceviche, shellfish, and white meats.
