Ca’ dei Zago Prosecco Col Fondo Valdobbiadene DOCG 2019
Ca’ dei Zago Prosecco Col Fondo Valdobbiadene DOCG 2018*
Hand-harvested, when the grapes reach the winery they are pressed by gravity and never pass through pumps. The Glera variety planted (and some Bianchetta and Verdisio e Perera) in the 6 hectares of vineyards are from very old clones. The soil is predominantly clay and limestone. The age of the vines is 50 years. Fermentation starts in concrete tanks (and depending on the vintage) can be for 10 to 20 days and is then transferred to stainless steel tanks where the fermentation continues except for the final 1%. The wine is bottled with this tiny bit of yeast and finishes the fermentation in the bottle. The spent yeast is left in the bottle. Shining bright straw, Ca’ dei Zago is upliftingly fresh and bone-dry. With a very attractive fizz or frizzante to it. Appley/citrus fruit with a hint of yeast. Reminds a bit of young, fresh, sparkling apple cider. Makes for an invigorating aperitif. Perfect also with a dim sum lunch, pakoras, tempura, sushi and sashimi.
*The 2018 vintage is starting to become gently creamy in texture. Although 2018 is already very good, the 2019 is even better!
