LUCA RICCI “LE FADE” PROSECCO DOCG

Straw yellow hues with a rich and dense mousse, both fine and persistent.  Intense and fruity nose with notes of golden apple, wisteria, honey, acacia  white flowers and elderberry. The palate echoes the fresh orchard and floral notes in the bouquet, and offers a medium-bodied, lush mid-palate. It reveals a great balance of acidity, depth and fullness on the finish, but ends with a touch of dryness and minerality to add to it’s elegance.

Production Notes: Utilizing the Charmat-Martinotti method, the grapes are picked, pressed and vinified in stainless steel tanks.  After initial fermentation, the wine then undergoes secondary fermentation in the tank and is bottled to order for a fresh expression of Prosecco every time.  The name “Le Fade” refers to the name of the country farmhouse on the property in Treviso that is open to visitors.

About Prosecco: Prosecco DOC can be spumante (“sparkling wine”), frizzante (“semi-sparkling wine”), or tranquillo (“still wine”), depending on the perlage. It is made from Glera grapes, formerly known also as Prosecco, but other grape varieties may be included. The name originates from the Italian village of Prosecco near Trieste, where the grape may have originated.  Prosecco usually is produced using the Charmat-Martinotti method, in which the secondary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, making the wine less expensive to produce. The rules for the DOCG Prosecco Valdobbiadene also allow the use of the Metodo Classico: secondary fermentation in the bottle.

About Luca Ricci: Located in the heart of Treviso, just 58 km north of Venice, the Luca Ricci estate is nestled between their two DOC and DOCG vineyard parcels, and the prosecco they produce highlights both the light, effervescent aperitivo style as well as the more complex expression that pairs beautifully throughout the meal.
