The Bortolin Angelo Spumanti produces its Valdobbiadene DOCG carefully respecting the oldest wine-making wisdom inherited in the family as well as the regulations of sparkling wine production method of Prosecco Superiore di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene. Designed by Antonio Carpenè at the end of the XIX century, as a new version of an ancient tradition of the territory, the method is characterized by some distinctive elements, first of all the harvest of Glera grapes exclusively done by hand along the steep slopes of the banks of Valdobbiadene. This is followed by the pressing of the grapes in wine-making centers, an operation carried out using sophisticated machinery that can softly press the grapes to extract only the free-run juice, from the very inside of the grapes. From 100 kg of grapes a maximum 70 liters of wine can b. obtained. The decanting phase follows, in which the turbid must is left to stand at a cold temperature (5-10 ° C) in steel tanks for about 10-12 hours. Then the wine making process takes place from the clear part of the must, initiated thanks to the natural enzymes which, added to the wort, cause the alcoholic fermentation that lasts about 15-20 days in stainless steel tanks at a constant temperature of 18-20 degrees. This wine is obtained from the base wine.
