Nani Rizzi Prosecco Superiore Valdobbiadene Extra Dry Docg Magnum
Nani Rizzi Prosecco Superiore Valdobbiadene Extra Dry DOCG Magnum This beautiful Prosecco Superiore Valdobbiadene Extra Dry is produced according to the Charmat method whereby a second fermentation does not take place in the bottle, but in the stainless steel barrel. Yeast and sugar are added to the tank, creating carbon dioxide. Because this carbon dioxide cannot escape, it dissolves in the wine. Liqueur d'expédition is added for bottling, a mixture of cane sugar, white wine and possibly esprit de cognac. When the second fermentation is finished, the sparkling wine is bottled under pressure. There is no contact with the outside air at any time.
The Valdobbiadene Prosecco Extra Dry is produced for 90% from Glera and 10% Perera grapes. Winery Nani Rizzi produces this beautiful Prosecco by combining traditional methods with new innovative techniques. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 250-300 meters. The vinification of the grapes, after being harvested by hand, is carried out with a light cold maceration to obtain a high-quality product. The Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry has a slightly floral, intensely ripe apple aroma and is therefore extremely suitable as an aperitif but also a very attractive Prosecco for seafood and fried or grilled shrimp. This prosecco has a beautiful perlage of just refined bubbles and is nicely mineral with, as befits the Extra Dry classification, just that little bit more residual sugar, which means that the Extra Dry is just a bit rounder. extra dry also very nice.
