The Cuvée “C” is the result of the successful intuition of combining the lively gaiety of Prosecco blended with a touch of Prosecco raisin wine. This is how a sparkling white wine that stands out for its marked personality of intense fruity and flowery fragrances and long, fresh flavours was created. The grapes are picked by hand in one of our vineyards, which is distinctive owing to the exposure and composition of the vineyards (young and old vineyards). Vinification occurs separately and at a controlled temperature for about 40 days. The Charmat method is used for the sparkling process, to maintain and exalt the fresh fragrances of the grapes by combining them with elegant flavours and a rich, creamy foam.
