Prapian Estate Asolo Prosecco Superiore Brut NV

Green apple aromas and subtle floral notes of acacia
carry the delicate bubbles across the refreshing palate
through to a light, crisp finish.
Producer Note
The Prapian Estate is located in the heart of the Treviso hills in the foothills of the
Dolomites between Nervesa Della Battaglia and Fonte, in the Veneto region of North
East Italy. The estate covers over 45 hectares in the DOCG Valdobbiadene area and
20 hectares in the DOCG Asolo-Nervesa area. It is cultivated organically and the wines
are vinified using organic techniques. Run by Filiberto Sacchetto alongside his son
Paolo and daughter Beatrice, together they oversee all aspects of the winemaking
process, with attention, passion and great flexibility. The combination of their innovative
vision and modern vinification techniques in their state-of- the-art winery, results in this
trio of stylish and characterful sparkling wines.
Vineyard
The grapes for this wine come from DOCG Asolo. The ancient paths which crisscross
the Montello hill along the north-south axis have been called ‘prese’ since the days of
the Venetian Republic. The number ‘3’ stands for the third ‘ring’ around the hill; at the
bottom of the hill is Presa number 1, then in ascending order is Presa number 2 followed
by number 3, where on the south slope of the hill, the Prapian vines produce a fresh
and fragrant Prosecco. Cooling hillside breezes combine with the warm Italian sunshine
creating the perfect microclimate for the Glera variety. The wide diurnal temperature
range delivers warm, sunny days and cool nights which encourages the production of
balanced, complex and aromatic grapes. Rainfall takes place mainly in spring, which
replenishes the soils’ water reserves to nourish the vines throughout the warm, summer
growth period. The bedrock is from the Miocene era and the hills are mainly rocky, with
sandy, clay and marl soils which are reddish in colour and offer excellent water
retention properties and provide ample nutrient elements, essential for the vine’s
growth. The vines are trained according to the Sylvoz (a cane pruned cordon method,
often used in the Veneto region, with canes trained downwards) and Doppio
Capovolto (a double arched cane which produces balanced, consistent crops)
methods.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully selected, destemmed and gently pressed by in a horizontal
press to obtain the must. The juice underwent a slow, temperature controlled
fermentation with selected yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The
wine underwent secondary fermentation in pressurised tanks known as the Charmat
method, resulting in the gently sparkling wine, which was then aged in stainless steel
tanks to preserve the freshness and pure fruit aromatics.
