Carpenè Malvolti, founded in 1868 by Antonio Carpenè, was the first winery to produce a quality Prosecco. A qualified chemist, in contact with Pasteur and Koch, he was convinced that a wine as good as Champagne could be produced in Italy. He applied his knowledge to the Prosecco grape, which is now known as Glera, the majestic variety of the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene zone. With 150 years of history, this is testament to Carpenè Malvolti's dedication to quality.
The vineyards are situated on the hillsides of the historic DOCG area of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. This unique territory with its high hills and steep slopes is covered with vineyards. It is so special that is has been nominated to enter the World Heritage list. Located at an elevation of 200 to 300 metres above sea level, the vineyards enjoy a south to south-easterly aspect. The cooling hillside breezes blend with the warm Mediterranean sunshine, creating the perfect microclimate to produce wines with crisp, aromatic flavours and characteristic elegance. The vines are grown in a mixture of soil types including layers of flaky red soil, limestone marl, and grey-green chalk, which add complexity to the resulting wines.
The grapes were immediately taken to the winery where they were de-stalked and then gently pressed to extract only the free-run juice. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of between 18 to 20°C. It then went through secondary fermentation at controlled temperatures in pressurised tanks, using local yeasts to obtain the "prise de mousse". The sparkling wine was then centrifuged, before being bottled under vacuum.
Delicate, aromatic and fruity with enticing notes of fresh green apple and floral nuances. Lively, with a crisp acidity enveloped in soft, gentle bubbles and an elegant, dry finish.
Ideal as an apéritif or in cocktails. Matches perfectly with light Mediterranean cuisine, delicate fish dishes and salads.
