FLORAL ROSÉ BRUT
Etna (Sicily) & Veneto, Italy
A Blend of Nerello Mascalese and Glera
Valdo was founded in 1926 by the Societa Anonima Vini Superiori and purchased by the Bolla Family in 1938. 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 one of the leading and most trusted Italian wineries specialized in Prosecco and sparkling wines.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
Grapes are harvested during the month of September. Nerello Mascalese – the predominant varietal in the blend – comes from vineyards approximately 1000 feet above sea level on the lower slopes of the Etna volcano in Sicily. Glera, the grape varietal of Prosecco, comes from vineyards in the Veneto. The grapes are soft pressed and fermentation occurs at 64°F in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. This significant step yields a consistent quality wine, while maintaining the typical fruity bouquet with hints of raspberry and red fruits. To obtain small and fine bubbles called “perlage” our expert oenologists make a selection of natural yeasts.AGEING
Three months Charmat ageing, followed by at least two months in the bottle.TASTING NOTES
