“Mosnigo, Moriago e Fontigo i è tre paesi che non val un figo!”
(Mosnigo, Moriago and Fontigo are three hamlet that are not worth a dime!)
All those who live in Quartier del Piave are familiar with this common saying. The soil is alluvial and numerous pebble of variable sizes make it difficult to be cultivated and extremely permeable, thus creating problems of drought during the hot season.
The use of machinery and the possibility to irrigate the vineyards artificially, have changed things thus demonstrating that, with the necessary devices, the vineyards located in the pebbly territory alongside the River Piave can produce surprising wines.
Starting from these prerequisites and from the belief to be able to reach excellent results, we have decided to produce our Prosecco DOC Treviso in the so-called “grave” zone. Our wines have a low residual sugar and are characterized by a very fine non-invasive bubble. They reveal floral aromas and hints mainly of white pulp fruits, while the peculiarity of our land gives them a lingering savoury taste.
The outcome is a Prosecco perfect as an aperitif, for a light meal or fish dishes, with a lingering finish and fresh on the palate.
