Ripe apple and pears on the nose, beautiful, steady, pinhead bubble finishing lifted and zesty. A family made Prosecco with more character and flavour than many less carefully made styles.

Le Contesse are a very accomplished family Prosecco and sparkling wine specialist. Three generations of the same family working together with 85 year old Olimpia at the family head. They make wines only from their own vineyards around Treviso.
The family invested in a purpose built winery just outside of Treviso in the early 70s. It is incredibility well thought out with both production and storage facilities. Equipment is unsurpassed with constant investment, most recently in horizontal rotary fermenters. They keep must in tanks at near zero degrees until they actually want to start production, this means that their sparkling wines are made all year round as required and the freshness and vivacity which is the hallmark of these wines is there all the time.
