The Prosecco Col Fondo takes Prosecco all the way back to its roots.  Harvested from the estate’s naturally farmed Glera fruit in the hills of Refrontolo, where the greatest grapes for Prosecco wine are grown, this wine undergoes its vinification in traditional Method Champenois.  After the initial fermentation in steel, the wine is bottled with its lees under the typical crown cap enclosure, including no preservatives or sulfites.  From here, the wine undergoes its secondary fermentation in bottle, but is never disgorged before release.  This is where this wine takes its name, “Col Fondo,” where the lees are ‘in the bottom.’  This traditional version of Prosecco gives the wine an incredible complexity, with lively and fragrant bread and yeasty notes, on top of the fresh and delicious apple fruit, citrus, and stone. Being that this wine still contains its deposit of lees within the bottle, this Prosecco can be enjoyed by decanting the wine off of the deposit for a clear, sparkling wine, or the deposit can be left in the glass to add to the rich aromas and incredible texture on the palate.
