BACKGROUND

Valdo was started in 1926 by the Societa Anonima Vini Superiori and purchased by the Bolla Family in the 1940’s. Over 90 years of continuous innovation with an ongoing quest for quality and devotion to respecting the vineyards & wine-making traditions of the region, has helped to secure Valdo’s position as the one of the best selling Proseccos in Italy in the last 15 years.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

A precise selection of grapes from the most prestigious areas of the DOCG territory are harvested during the second half of September.
In Valdobbiadene, the vineyards sit at an altitude of 820’ and are composed of calcareous/clay and morainic (glacially formed) soils. In Conegliano, the clay soils have an altitude of 263'.

WINEMAKING

The grapes undergo a short maceration on the skins (closed press) followed by soft pressing with free-run must. The wine is produced via Charmat method in an extra-dry style (16 g/L dosage).

AGING

After the primary fermentation, the wine is aged on the fine lees in stainless steel vats for a total of 120 days.

TASTING NOTES

Ripe apple, pear, peach along with tropical fruits such as banana and pineapple are accented by floral notes. A well-balanced, pleasant, and harmonious palate with a medium-body and a long, persistent finish.
