Millesimato Prosecco DOC Brut
Villa Marcello Prosecco DOC hails from the province of Treviso, one of the finest growing regions of Prosecco. The estate covers 57 hectares, of which 26.5 are planted under vine. The vineyards are situated at 25 meters above sea level where the soil is silty clay for structured, yet elegant wines. As with the other Mazzei estates, Villa Marcello is managed with minimal intervention and with the utmost environmental care. As a Millesimato, the Villa Marcello Prosecco uses grapes from a single vintage only.
Fourteen days of primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 57ºF with specially selected yeast.
The wine undergoes four months of lees aging. Second fermentation occurs over approximately 60 days in autoclave at a controlled temperature.TASTING NOTES
