Intro to Giavi Prosecco Superiore Brut Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG Veneto –
This Giavi Prosecco has fresh fruity & floral aromas and a balanced fruity lingering taste.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The Giavi Prosecco Superiore from Conegliano Valdobbiadene has fresh aromas of green apple and pear enriched by delicate floral notes. On the palate it is balanced and round with very pleasant acidity. It has creamy and elegant bubbles with a long finish.
First of all the grapes are gently pressed and then a static moved to tanks for fermentation at a cool controlled temperature. The secondary fermentation that generates the lovely soft bubbles takes place in stainless steel tanks (cuvée close) at a controlled temperature with selected yeasts and lasts ninety days. This is followed by tartaric stabilisation at low temperature and bottle refinement for a minimum of one month.
The vineyards, located in the hill of Monticella right above the town of Conegliano and are farmed sustainably. Vines are trained with the traditional sylvoz system where the canes are bound to the lower wire, two or three buds are left for the following year. All work is carried out by hand.
The producer –
The life of the Giavi farm started as early as 900 AD and Prosecco has been made there since 1914. The vineyards cover an area of around 12 hectares on a hillside overlooking the town of Conegliano. The majority of the harvest is done by hand and the quality of the resulting wine is high, full of purity and freshness of fruit, making these very much boutique wines.
Marco Cuscito, the owner, worked tirelessly renovating the vineyards, and replanting the vines for Prosecco Superiore DOCG. With only 12 ha of vineyards, careful pruning each year, 60% of the harvest is done by hand, and only estate grown grapes used, the quality of the resulting wine is high, making these very much boutique wines.
Drink with –
It is a great wine for an aperitif, but goes well with canapes, ham, cheese and delicate fish.
