Maresina Prosecco

Viti/Vini
Farmed organically and hand-picked, which is very unusual for Prosecco production. A combination of noncontiguous blocks with varied exposition, soil and climate produce grapes with an individual character that results in increased complexity to the wine. Lower yields, about half of the local norm, results in smaller, more concentrated berries. Gentle pressing, then chilled down to settle out the solids. Racked into tank for the primary fermentation at controlled temperatures of about 12–15 degrees Celsius. Tank method for secondary fermentation. Fined, filtered, bottled.
Producer

Rezzadore is approximately 12 hectares of organically farmed vines in Lonigo. It is a place where nature is happy. The estate is owned by the Rezzadore family, which touts an incredible history with production dating back to the 17th century. Generations of viticulture and wine-making have led to the pinnacle level of expertise. Driven by passion and an unwavering commitment to impeccable quality, the Rezzadore family is a unique producer of Prosseco in a region where bulk production dominates. After their father retired, Luca took charge of the vineyards and younger brother, Giuseppe, makes the wine. The name Maresina is lovely and feminine and is derived from a local herb that grows wild in the area. It has quite deep, earthy aromas and is used in local dishes.
