Ruggeri Vecchie Viti Prosecco Superiore Brut Valdobbiadene 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

“This wine, obtained from the Old Vines of Valdobbiadene, the most beautiful and longlived Prosecche, Bianchette, Verdise and Perere, would be a tribute to our country and to the memory of all men and women who, with their hands and their heart, made it an extraordinary and fertile land”. We named this wine “Vecchie Viti” (Old Vines) because it is the fruit of grapes coming from old vines scattered all over the hills of Valdobbiadene’s territory and not from a single vineyard. Of course, it is difficult to determinate with absolute precision the age of these vines, but we can say that they are between 80 and 100 years old. To produce this wine we need the cooperation of numerous farmers, owners of the best vineyards in San Pietro, Santo Stefano, Cartizze, Guia and Saccol. In winter and in spring we select about 2000 old vines that give us altogether about 5800 Kg. grapes. The wine obtained from the first fermentation, after some decanting-operations, is left together with the yeasts until spring and then it is transferred into the pressure-vat. The second fermentation is carried on slowly, with great care, and then the wine is left in contact with the yeast until a few days before the bottling, that is made at the end of June.
