Description

8Cento Prosecco D.O.C Treviso Brut 11%

The small Prosecco 8cento winery is located between the distinctive hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene which is located in northern Veneto towards the foothills of the Alps. This area is known worldwide as the heart of Prosecco and now recently has become a Unesco World Heritage Site. In this region, the warm climate, occurring rainfall combined with the steep, well-drained slopes of limestone, clay and sandstone make it the perfect environment to grow the Glera grape. Founded in 1900, over the years different generations have helped grow and constantly improve the estate which is now a leader in quality for the region, producing a range of styles which include one of the region’s driest wines alongside a fantastic and excellently priced vintage release. While firmly rooted in tradition, their winery is equipped with the latest technological innovation to ensure consistently high levels of quality.

 

WINEMAKING AND FOAMING

The pressing takes place after the grapes are harvested by hand at the start of September, gathered from vineyards and transported to the winery. It’s accomplished by sophisticated equipment which presses the grape very gently so only the free-running juice from the heart of the berry is extracted. After the pressing, the turbid must is left to rest in stainless steel tanks and chilled to a temperature of 50°F (10°C). After approximately 10-12 hours, the limpid part of the must is separated from the deposits and fermentation begins. The vinification takes about 10 days and is completed in stainless steel tanks kept at a constant temperature of 65°F (18°C). The limpid Prosecco still wine is foamed adding specially selected yeasts and the right quantity of sugar needed to obtain the required amount of bubbles. The whole process takes about 20-25 days at a constant temperature of 60-65°F (15-18°C), once sparkling is obtained it is chilled at 25°F (-4°C) for 3 days, it is then filtered and bottled.
