Oenological objective: obtaining an Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG sparkling wine with a strong character and distinct personality, starting from a very difficult viticulture, with a high hill with steep slopes characterized by well exposed soils and with a manual grape harvesting.

Terroir: located in Asolo (TV), in the high hills. It is characterized by a strong rocky matrix of conglomerate, with some marly-calcareous rock banks. The calcareous matrix on the ground is pronounced, which is not very well endowed with organic substance but it is very draining due to the steep slope and the low percentage of clay. The almost outcropping conglomerate significantly conditions the vine to deepen the root system for the retrieval of water and vital elements, a constriction that will be significant in bringing to the wine aromas and decisive sapidity.

Planting density: 3800 vines per ha.

 

Land management: total grassing over and manual mowing of both escarpments and under rows.

 

Growing activities: all manual, seeds sprout and grow, shoot pruning and topping, conveying of the snatches and flocking.

 

Harvest: first decade of September, hand harvesting of the grapes and collection in crates.
