Conte Collalto Prosecco Superiore DOCG Sui Lieviti Brut Nature Ottaviano
The Collalto family are one of the oldest winemaking enterprises in Italy, tracing their ownership of vineyards in the region to 958 AD! The estate today comprises 1500 hectares, 150 of which are under vine. 65 of these are planted solely for Prosecco. The vines (aged from 10 to 50 years) are planted on marl, clay and limestone, at altitudes ranging between 200 and 300m.
Brut Nature Ottaviano is named after Count Ottaviano Antonio Collalto, who constructed the estates cellars in 1904. It is made from specially selected grapes from the vineyards on the Colfosco hillside. There are hints of ripe white peaches on the nose, and on the palate there is a delicious rounded, creamy texture. The style is rich and full with a minimal sugar content.
Traditionally, it would be served in a jug at 8-10 °C or you can gently shake the bottle before pouring, so that the yeasts deposited on the bottom are integrated with the wine. The yeasty haziness is a sign of quality – not a defect!
Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
