It is obtained from the Prosecco grapes of the pleasant Conegliano Veneto hills that are wilted on rush matting and pressed between January and mid-February.
The very slow fermentation of the thick juice in oak kegs that extends until the summer and the long maturation give the wine a particularly inviting and enveloping fragrance and a generous and persistent flavour.
It is great as both a dessert and meditation wine. Tradition has it that it is served with dry biscuits and jam tarts in general. To accentuate its pleasantness, serve chilled.
