23/07/2018 – Case Bianche, Prosecco ‘Vigna del Cuc’

(2018) A distinctly superior Superiore, from a single, south-facing vineyards in the prime Conegliano / Valdobbiadene zone. Just a few hectares of old vines are reserved exclusively for this cuvée. It is made with a longer maceration on the grape skins before fermentation, to maximise flavours, and is a particularly dry and grown-up style. Floral, lime peel and crunchy apple aromas lead on to a mouth-watering palate, a pithy lemon and grapefruit acidity asserting against the prettier fruit flavours, to give an intensity rarely found in Prosecco, still clear and gossamer-light, into a long, refined finish.
