What does Millesimato mean?
This prosecco was exclusively produced with the best grapes of that particular year. The company provides the greatest guarantee of product quality from the vineyard to the glass.
Prosecco Brut Bosco del Merlo is produced exclusively from Glera grapes which on reaching the correct technological maturity are harvested during the night in order to guarantee the preservation of the grape’s aromatic characteristics. The high number of plants per hectare creates conditions of high competitiveness amongst plants which leads to optimal levels of technological maturity and aromas, to create a wine that mixes finesse and character to perfection.
Prosecco is the fruit of a passion for things done well. It takes attention, care and excellent raw materials, fragrant, crisp and with the right acidity. For this Millesimato we choose our best grapes and treat them with great care. Fermentation to froth takes place at 13 °C, with the typical Martinotti or Charmat method, breathing life on a thin perlage, pleasant and soft and with a delicate and distinctive scent.
This wine is characterised by a brilliant pale-yellow colour, a typically fruity scent with floral nuances (wisteria and acacia) and notable apple and pear characteristics. The flavour is dry, sharp and persistent, with a beautiful complexity. A lively freshness, savoury taste and minerality. A charming appearance designed for the most prestigious of tables. Flag and symbol of Italian charm around the world.
Perfect as an aperitif and conversation wine, it is excellent for all dishes. Particularly suitable for seafood and to accompany lighter Mediterranean dishes. For Asian cuisine, it is ideal for Bak Kut Teh.
