Rive di Santo Stefano

‘PIONIERE’ Rive di Santo Stefano. Let’s start with the mention RIVE on the label. This claim is very important from the point of view of quality, because it indicates the Cru of origin of this sparkling wine. Our Consortium has identified restricted areas in the hills of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, where viticulture gives superior quality results.
These areas are shown on the label with the mention RIVE and the reference of the production area, in our case Santo Stefano. The name of the bottle comes from the founder Gemin, who was one of the PIONEERS in Valdobbiadene in the production of sparkling wine and in the enhancement of this noble wine.
The soil of origin of this Valdobbiadene DOCG is clayey, marly, therefore it gives it flavor and structure, which help to balance its complete absence of residual sugar. The vines are all very old (over 50 years), and this helps a lot the olfactory complexity, which evolves in the glass when it is poured.
As for Cartizze, also this sparkling wine is separated from the grapes and arrives separated in the bottle. One of its peculiarities is the period of rest on the lees in autoclave, which is 180 days: this long aging leads to the evolution of aromas and structural nuances, typical of this Valdobbiadene DOCG. To restore the balance the wine remains to rest for another 4 months after bottling and be ready for sale. Particular not to be underestimated: we can offer our wine only one year after the harvest. This means that if the raw material is quality, the Valdobbiadene DOCG can last over time. On the contrary, a Prosecco DOC after 4-6 months sees its quality completely diminish.  Back to the PIONEER: it has no residual sugar, although the taste sensation could confuse the palate (we consider it a great value).

Each bottle is then wrapped by hand and put on the market.

Serving temperature 6-8° C

Food Pairing: to be tasted in fine dinners and special occasions. It goes well with shellfish or a selection of raw fish, but can also be enjoyed with slightly oily white meat.
