Cielo e Terra, Casa Defra, Prosecco DOC, Rosé, Italy, 2021
Cielo e Terra is a joint venture between two families, Cielo, who have been making wine for over a century in Veneto and 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 varieties.
A manual grape harvest from vineyards across the Prosecco DOC area of North East Italy.
Soft pressing and fermentation via the Charmat method without maceration at a controlled temperature below 20 ° C, with selected yeasts. The second fermentation takes place under automatic temperature control to obtain a slow and consistent refermentation for at least 60 days. In this way, in addition to the increased aroma profile, a persistent and very pleasant mousse is obtained.
No oak ageing
