(2019) This organic vineyard is surrounded by forest, with no immediate vineyard neighbours, allowing them to farm organically with no danger of neighbour's synthetic chemicals drifting into the vineyard. 250 metres elevation on a very steep limestone slope. So different on the nose, a definite yeasty autolysis, such a pleasing breadth and depth of aroma and flavour, very fine mousse and a delicious length and balance. Peachy, but biscuity too thanks to extra time on the lees. No UK retail stockist at time of review.
(2018) What a fascinating - and really excellent - wine this is. From a single vineyard, it is a vintage wine with zero residual sugar, and therefore bone-dry. This is a family firm, daughters Maria Elena, Elvira, Luisa and Giuliana Bortolomiol carrying on the work of their father Giuliano, the wines made by Roberto Cipresso, one of Italys most highly-regarded oenelogists. The result is a fabulous, pin-sharp and refined Prosecco, where delicate pear and herb aromas are swept up in a rush of lemon and lime, crystalline acidity. A genuine food Prosecco, with terrific finesse and length. No UK stockists at time of writing
