Prosecco Casa Belfi
CSB.80.1-75Regular price €14,50
Produced in the Prosecco heartland of the Veneto using the Glera grape variety, this hazy wine comes from the biodynamic estate of Casa Belfi. Every stage of the process is eco-friendly, from the use of natural manures and green fertilisers in the vineyard, to gentle crushing of grapes in the winery. Indigenous yeasts are used during the fermentation process, after which the wine is left in contact with the lees for around 6 months, before being bottled in the spring.
The result is a light bodied, bone-dry wine which, without filtering or clarification, can be extremely cloudy. Straw yellow in colour, it displays fine, persistent bubbles and a flowery nose, accompanied by notes of citrus, yeast and baked bread on the palate. The lees at the bottom of the bottle offer the wine softness, mouthfeel and longevity and can be shaken into the Prosecco to give buttery-spicy flavours.
Maurizio Donadi, trained in winemaking, but with great heart and skill, has for some years recovered some family vineyards and has decided to introduce himself to the public with an approach of respect for his work, and love for the land, in order to obtain grapes healthy and energetic, intervening on their wines only to accompany them along the way, without intervening heavily or chemically. His first wine was Casa Belfi Colfondo, which today has grown tired of the denomination and prefers to present himself as naturally sparkling Colfondo refermented in the bottle.
