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.


Vintage
The winter was cold, with frequent rain which helped to replenish the soil’s water
reserves, which sustained the vines through the hot summer period. The 2019
summer experienced hot, dry weather, allowing the grapes to reach good maturity
levels. The harvest was abundant, with healthy grapes of good quality and
character.


Vineyard
The grapes for this wine come from DOCG Valdobbiadene area. Located in the
foothills, cooling hillside breezes combine with the warm Mediterranean sunshine
creating the perfect microclimate for the Glera variety. The wide diurnal temperature
range delivers warm, sunny days and cool nights which encourage 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 soils of Conegliano Valdobbiadene have very ancient
origins, deriving from raised sea and lake beds. Part of the area was influenced by
the ancient glaciers of the Dolomites, which carried sediments downhill resulting in
deep soils, rocky and sandy, rich in clay and iron oxides. In the remaining area,
unaffected by the glaciers, the soils are marine in origin, with shallower marl and
sandstone soils. The vines are Guyot trained and the grapes for this wine are
organic.


Winemaking
Vinified organically, 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 in stainless steel tanks at 18°C reducing to 14°C,
with selected yeasts. 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.

Fruity aromas of apple and acacia blossom lead to a lively, fresh and fruity palate
