Historical background

Serprino grapes, which have always been grown in the area of Colli Euganei, are considered equal to Prosecco ones in the wine industry. Hence Serprino and Prosecco are synonyms. Their origin is not known yet, but history shows that the vine was named after a small village near Trieste, where it was called “Glera” instead. However today Prosecco vines are no longer grown in the surroundings of the village of Prosecco.
Serprino vines have been grown on the slopes of the local hills (Colli Euganei) for a long time; hence this vine species is regarded as typically local. The local eco- system renders Serprino/Prosecco grapes excellent for wine-making.

Winemaking

Grapes are harvested when they are not completely ripe, since the quantity of alcohol in the wine cannot exceed 10.5 °.
Grapes are stored in a cool place at a temperature of 7-8 °C in the winery. They are subsequently softly pressed by means of a pneumatic press. The must is kept in a steel vessel for 12 hours to become clear at a monitored temperature. After decanting, it ferments at a monitored temperature of 18-20°C. Constant and accurate screening is vital to assess whether additional decanting or other operations are needed.
Once filtered, the wine re-ferments in specific vessels known as autoclaves, where the most appropriate pressure is reached.

Vinificazione

La raccolta dell’uva avviene leggermente in anticipo rispetto alla piena maturazione dato che la gradazione alcolica del vino base non superara i 10,5° alcolici.
Le uve arrivate in cantina vengono diraspate e raffreddate fino a una temperatura di 7-8 gradi.
Pressate sofficemente mediante una pressa pneumatica, il mosto ottenuto viene posto in una vasca di acciaio per 12 ore a temperatura controllata per illimpidirsi.
Travasato viene fatto fermentare a temperatura controllata di 18-20° C.
Medianti costanti e accurati controlli si valuta se necessita di ulteriori travasi o altre operazioni di cantina.
Il vino viene filtrato e preparato per la rifermentazione che avviene in apposite vasche chiamate autoclavi, dove raggiunge la pressione voluta.

Degustazione

Profilo aromatico fresco e leggiadro con sensazioni che ricordano un bouquet floreale e note di frutta e agrumi. Il vino è come il profumo spensierato, piacevole e fresco. Propone gli stessi requisiti del prosecco spumante accompagnati da una spumosità più dolce.

Abbinamento consigliato

In qualsiasi momento da solo. Come aperitivo e antipasti di pesce crudo. Da merenda con salumi e formaggi leggeri.

Temperatura di servizio: 8°C
