Canella

Prosecco Brut DOC: 100% Glera grown in Marca Trevigiana. The grapes are vinified by means of the Charmat method. A lengthy sojourn on the lees endows it with concentration and intensity of flavors. This is an extremely appealing spumante characterized by its lively aromas and fruit and the ideal balance of acidity and sugar, which renders it both mellow and fresh. Dry and persistent on the palate, it is a marvelous aperitif as well as an all-around fish & fowl wine to accompany the entire meal or for pairing with fresh cheeses.

Prosecco Superiore "Millesimato" DOCG: 100% Glera from vines in Valdobbiadene. The finest grapes from each vintage are selected. The Charmat process is repeated throughout the year to guarantee product freshness and quality consistency. After fermentation, the wine is aged on the lees for one month. Straw yellow in color with fine perlage, the nose is fruity and crisp with mellow floral flavors.

Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry "Millesimato" DOCG: 100% Glera from vines in the superior, hilly area between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. The grapes undergo vinification using the Charmat process, which is repeated throughout the year in order to guarantee freshness and quality consistency. Soft butter yellow with fine, persistent perlage, fruity aromas of peach, apple, pear and citrus fruit, the palate gracefully balances zingy acidity and a subtle hint of sweetness, richness and silky-smooth texture. A delectable aperitif, the classic Prosecco versatility also makes it a fine accompaniment to the entire meal, particularly fish-based first courses, squid, caviar, prawns, and sturgeon.

Pinot Noir Brut Rosé: 100% mountain-grown Pinot Nero from Trentino an area known for yielding exceptional Pinot Noir grapes. The vines face South and grow clay soil mixed with larger rocks. The grapes are handpicked in late September before being fermented in stainless steel for a maximum of six months. This wine combines the freshness and fruit of Canella sparkling wines with the seductive appeal of pink and the elegance of time spent on its lees. Light pink in color, its bouquet is floral and appealing, the palate fresh and mellow at the same time: an ideal summer aperitif or the perfect match with fish dishes, including sushi.
