In the Venetian hinterland just north west of Venice, at the heart of the classic DOC Prosecco land, in the most vocated areas of Collalbrigo. Refrontolo and Feletto where, according to Bonifacio, local wines between the l6th aud l7th ceutury were called "precious" because of their exceptionally high quality, is our ColSaliz wine farm. The hill's name apparently comes from its characteristic sandy soil, called "saliz" in the local dialect, conferring special features to the area's Prosecco grapes. The wine farm, owned by Antonio Faganello, is well equipped with modem facilities but relies on old traditional wine making techniques handed over from father to son since way back in 1889. Its laud includes 15 hectares uf vineyards in Refrontolo, with a favourable west and south-west exposure, at 200-300 m. altitude. The "silvuz" and "cappuccina" cultivation methods, together with a suitable vine density and drastic cut in fertilizers, ensure an excellent quality for the Prosecco grapes, thanks also to a substantially reduced yield. All our wines are obtained from the farm's own Prosecco grapes in up to date vinification facilities: soft grapes pressing and must fermentation in temperature-controlled vessels are followed by the autoclave "presa di spuma" step tu get optimum perlage. ColSaliz's Prosecco comes in two versions: sparkling and spumante, the latter featuring Cartizze Superiore, Extra Dry and VSAQ spumante.
Characterized by intense acidity guarantees Prosecco good ability for preservation. Pleasant and consistent structure with a bitter aftertaste enhances its complexity.
Pleasant and complex structure of wine with an almond aftertaste is best combined with light appetizers and seafood.
