The glera grapes grown on the Conegliano hills gave us a base wine of impressive complexity and minerality. The second fermentation in the bottle, in accordance with the classic method, enhances its fragrances and aromatic qualities, giving this sparkling wine a striking personality. It boasts an intense bouquet of hazelnuts and juicy apple and pear, alongside hints of acacia honey, freshbaked rolls, and apple cake. After the clusters are de-stemmed and the grapes gently pressed, the must is gravity-settled then fermented partly in steel and partly in oak barrels, with no temperature control. The wine matures sur lie for 3 months. After the second fermentation in the bottle, the wine rests sur lie for 16-18 months, and is then disgorged and topped up with the same wine, with no liqueur d’expédition.
SC1931 - Prosecco Spumante
It takes its name from the initials of Sergio Cosmo, Bellenda’s founder, and his year of birth.
Excellent as an aperitif wine, S.C. 1931 is as superb partner to antipasti and risottos as well, and should be tried with roast poultry and veal. It will show good development during the two years following the vintage date; if it is well stored, its nose and palate will grow in complexity even five years after harvest.
