Prosecco D.O.C.G. Conegliano Valdobbiadene

Prosecco D.O.C.G. Conegliano Valdobbiadene
The Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore is a DOCG sparkling wine obtained from Glera grapes and produced exclusively in the hillside area between Vittorio Veneto and Valdobbiadene in the province of Treviso.

The territory includes 15 municipalities and its name comes from its two capitals: Conegliano and Valdobbiadene.

The Conegliano Valdobbiadene can be tasted in the Brut “Vigna del Cuc”, Extra Dry “Extra Dry” and Dry “Undici” versions, which can be distinguished by their different residual sugar content. Though in a considerably lower amount, the Conegliano Valdobbiadene is also produced in a lightly sparking (Frizzante) style, as in the case of “Antico” Case Bianche, a Prosecco that has been re-fermented in the bottle (“col fondo”).

The “Rive” DOCG is a further classification and it represents the very essence of the territory. “Rive” is obtained from grapes that are grown in a single municipality (for instance, Rive di Susegana) and its name recalls the steep slopes of its territory. Other features of this “Cru” are its production, limited to only 130 quintals per hectare, and its harvest, rigorously hand-made, as in the case of “Undici” and “Nature” by Col Sandago.
