Cielo e Terra, Casa Defra, Bianco Superiore, Colli Berici, DOC, Venezie, Italy, 2020

Producer Profile

Cielo e Terra is a joint venture between two families, Cielo, who have been making wine for over a century in Veneto, Puglia and the Cantina Sociale Colli Berici.

Drawing on the Colli Berici's vineyard resources, combined with the Cielo family's winemaking skills, their partnership consistently produces wines which are fantastic value for money from both indigenous and international varietals.

Viticulture

The Berici Hills are a hilly formation with undulating reliefs, of modest heights (300-400 meters). The morphology of the hills is enriched by the presence of hilly slopes alternating with valleys. The altitude between 50 and 200 meters preserves mists and late frosts and enhances the effect of solar radiation with a long daily exposure to light in the most important months for the development of the vine and the ripening of the bunches. The microclimate of the Berici Hills is very favorable for the cultivation of vines, with particularly mild temperatures until late autumn, a good temperature range between day and night and a limited annual precipitation (500 - 600 mm).

Winemaking

Manual grape harvest, soft pressing and fermentation without maceration at a controlled temperature below 20 ° C and in the presence of selected yeasts. Storage in steel tanks at controlled temperature always below 20 ° C trying to protect the wine with nitrogen to avoid the oxidative effect of the air. Stabilization and cold bottling by means of isobaric filler.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment
