BackgroundArtistry, energy and ingenuity abound in this enticing Prosecco from entrepreneur Sandro Bottega and his family. The basic principles Sandro holds fundamental are simple: creativity, quality and flavor are inextricably linked; discovery is a never-ending process; and imaginative presentation is essential. To pay homage to Venice, this Prosecco is made only from grapes grown in the region of Veneto. The golden bottle represents the gold tiles that decorate the famous St. Mark's Basilica. The gilded bottle also protects the wine from light, preserving the wine's clean and refreshing aromas. Distilleria Bottega was founded nearly 40 years ago by master distiller Aldo Bottega, Sandro Bottega's father. The company is headquartered in Castello Roganzuolo, about 30 miles from Venice, Italy.
VinificationGrapes are hand-harvested & softly pressed in the winery. Bottega uses the Italian Charmat method, with fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a secondary fermentation in sealed tanks for 40 days. The wine is then promptly bottled and released.
