Gregoletto Prosecco 2018

Gregoletto (Greg-oh-LET-oh). Please note (this is what makes it hipster-friendly – the cool-kid term is “Pet-Nat”, short for petillant-natural. Sui Lieviti is the same idea):

The sui lieviti bottlings represent the history of this region before the Champagne method was invented. Secondary fermentation takes place in bottle slowly and a fine sediment forms in the bottom of the bottle–by carefully pouring the wine you can easily leave the sediment in the bottle. The Gregolettos recommend using the small amount of wine with this fondo or remaining deposit for making risotto! Rest assured, it is also perfectly safe to drink.

 

VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION

• Hand-harvested
• Natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks
• Aging in stainless steel on fine lees for 3 to 5 months

Prosecco DOC Treviso Sui Lieviti:
• Hillside vineyards in Premaor, Miane, Refrontolo, and Rua Feletto (within the DOCG Conegliano - Valdobbiadene)
• Wine is not labeled as a DOCG because the Gregolettos choose to use a crown cap, which is not permitted, although they find it is by far the best closure for producing this style of wine with a secondary fermentation in bottle.
• Primary fermentation in stainless steel, then bottled by hand along with a small amount of natural liqueur made from their own grapes that triggers fermentation in bottle.
• The secondary fermentation continues in bottle over an indeterminable amount of time, in fact each bottle is slightly different. Vino vivente! Living wine!
• Aged in bottle for 60 days before release

Colli Trevigiani Verdiso IGT:

• Verdiso is a native grape variety to the foothills of Treviso and was first documented in the area more than 200 years ago
• Hillside vineyards in Premaor and Miane

Colli Trevigiani Manzoni Bianco IGT:
• Manzoni Bianco is a hybrid of Pinot Blanc and Riesling
• Fermented in stainless steel tank
• No malolactic fermentation
• Aged in stainless steel tank on fine lees for 8 months
