Silvano Follador, Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG 2012
11.5° Grape: 100% Prosecco with Verdisio, Glera and Biachetta
Just when you thought you knew everything about Prosecco, along comes Silvano, and bowls you over! The Glera grape has never been so ennobled. Fine, subtle, prosecco Charmat of the utmost elegance, and perfect balance. Silvano aims to bring the earth in the wine, through the agency of a highly restrained winemaker, but what a fine-grained earth is this! In the restricted area of Cartizze known for its characteristic elegance, Silvano goes for a charmat spumante using indigenous yeasts and spontaneous fermentation, leaving it on its lees for 7 months.
A pale with greenish tinges with typical Prosecco nose of white peach green apples and a hint of pear. Uniquely dry(5g/L) and slightly savoury on the palate, this Follador Cartizze is impressively balanced for a wine with only a negligible quantity of residual sugar and manages to combine both a sense of regional identity and an identity brought about by Silvano Follador's winemaking choices a stony minerality and elegant mousse completes the experience 550 cases produced.
