Prosecco Valdobbiadene DOCG Soligo Solicum
Commended - International Wine Challenge 2017
Commended - Decanter World Wine Awards 2017
A delicious Prosecco from Cantina Colli del Soligo, a co-operative of around 700 growers, in the heart of Prosecco country. It's very pale, almost clear in colour with strong fruit flavours. There's real Champagne body and depth to the wine. Lovely flavours and mouthfeel, well balanced with a long dry finish. Great wine.
"Straw yellow in colour with greenish tinges. Delicate, lively, the notes of wild flowers and fruit blend into a harmonious whole of rare finesse. On the palate, it has beautiful and lively creamy consistency that blends well with its softness."

Vinification: The base wine for Cuvée Solicum is obtained by fermenting the best Prosecco grapes from older vineyards within the Soligo co-operative. The grapes are hand harvested in September at medium ripeness to preserve acidity. After soft pressing and traditional fermentation in stainless steel tank, the wine is then racked and a second fermentation in autoclaves takes places to add the sparkle. This is known as the 'Charmat' fermentation.
