The grapes for this Prosecco are picked in the second half of September.
The soft pressed must is stored in steel tanks for static cold decanting. The fermentation with selected yeasts is carried out at a controlled temperature of 18 °C and takes 8-10 days. After a storage period, the winemaker ensures the expected level of quality is achieved for this Prosecco Spumante cuvée. The wine is then filtered and stored in steel tanks with the addition of sucrose and selected yeasts for the second fermentation (Martinotti-Charmat method) at a controlled temperature of 14-15 °C. Once the wine has reached the required pressure levels, alcohol and sugar content, the wine is refrigerated and cold stabilized. It is filtered before bottling.
The Botter Prosecco Spumante has a crisp and delicate perlage. There is a pale light yellow colour, alongside a delicate and complex bouquet with fruity notes that are reminiscent of peach, green apple with second notes of acacia and wisteria. It is fresh and light on the palate, with balanced acidity and body; it proves itself to be harmonic with a long persistent aftertaste.
