Cielo e Terra, Casa Defra, Prosecco Spumante d'Oro, DOC, Veneto, Italy

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

Individual vine-growers contribute their grapes to the wineries based on personal cards recording all identification data of the production areas. During vintage, the agronomist in charge verifies the extent of maturation of the grapes and establishes vintage timing accordingly. Upon arrival at the winery, grapes are selected by type, area of origin and sugar content, as these indications are fundamental to determine the wine quality potential. Each bunch is trimmed to increase concentration, grapes are hand picked.

Winemaking

Soft pressing and fermentation with maceration at a controlled temperature no lower than 20 ° C and in the presence of yeasts. Storage in steel tanks at a controlled temperature always below 20 ° C trying to protect the wine with nitrogen to avoid the oxidative effect of the air.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

A delightfully frothy sparkler with aromatic apple and pear flavours on the nose followed by a crisp palate of succulent fruits. Gently foamy, just off dry and possessing an enticing, bright finish.

Food Matching

Excellent for fine and light dishes and throughout the day.
