Fattoria Conca D’Oro is a small, family-run farm situated just west of the ancient city of Conegliano along the prosecco wine road. The vineyards are ideally positioned in an amphitheatre shape (from which the name Conca--shell--comes from), which allows for maximum sun exposure and ripening. Prosecco, the sparkling wine of northeast Italy, is produced between two towns in the Veneto region, Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. In any case, it is made from the Glera grape, a late-ripening white grape variety that produces very pedestrian wine, but is wonderful when made into sparkling wine. Prosecco is produced using the Charmat method, whereby a second fermentation is provoked in a pressure tank before bottling, as opposed to the Champagne method, where bubbles are created by a second fermentation in the bottle. Nevertheless, the price of prosecco makes it an ideal substitute for Champagne for those everyday occasions when you feel like celebrating.
This is a superb example of Prosecco Superiore. The grapes grow on the beautiful hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, a unique and incomparable place.
The particular composition of the soil, the lay of the land and the rolling hills and valleys which are blessed with a favourable climate influenced by the mountains and the sea, all contribute to making an intensely aromatic Prosecco with a distinctive and elegant flavour. Fresh and fruity with green apples, grapefruit, banana and floral notes of acacia. Follows through with good acidity, making it fresh, harmonious and velvety.
