    Winemaker Notes

    Aromas of ripe golden apples, acacia, and honeysuckle are exhibited on the nose. On the palate, the wine is dry, fresh and fruit-driven with citrus and stone-fruit flavors.

    Blend: 85% Glera, 15% Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc

    Giancarlo Moretti Polegato’s esteemed Villa Sandi is headquartered in a majestic 1622

    Palladian-style villa in the heart of the Prosecco region. The Villa represents the confluence

    of art and architecture that has manifested itself in the Venetian landscape for many centuries.

    Benefiting from land suitable for growing both white and red varietals, Villa Sandi produces and

    offers wines for every occasion, from the everyday approachability of the Prosecco D.O.C. to the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. to the special Cartizze, a cru made in the heart of the most prestigious Valdobbiadene Prosecco area. We’ve added a still white to our Villa Sandi portfolio with the addition of Pinot Grigio. Parts of the estate suitable for red grapes produce a small volume of Pinot Noir that colors the Il Fresco Rosé. Whether served as an aperitif, at the end of a meal, or with any course in between, Prosecco’s natural acidity and fresh taste complements any meal.

    Villa Sandi employs a unique “on-demand” production technique that ensures their Prosecco is always fresh and lively. After harvest, not all of the juice is fermented immediately. Villa Sandi stores some of the unfermented juice at 32°F. When more wine is needed, the temperature of the must is brought to 59-61°F and yeast cultures added, then fermented and bottled. This process allows Villa Sandi to deliver the freshest wines possible, emphasizing the fresh floral and fruity notes that Prosecco is known for.

    One of the world’s most popular and playful sparkling wines, Prosecco is a specialty of northeastern Italy, spanning nine provinces of the Veneto and Fruili-Venezia Giulia regions. A higher-quality version that must meet more stringent production requirements is known as Prosecco Superiore and must come from the more rugged terrain between the towns of Valdobiaddene and Conegliano. Prosecco can be produced as a still wine, a semi-sparkling wine (“frizzante”), or a fully sparkling wine (“spumante”)—the latter being the most common. While it is typically produced in a “brut” (dry) style, its fresh and fruity character makes it seem a bit sweeter than it actually is. “Extra brut” styles, incorporating higher levels of residual sugar, are quite popular, however.

    Made from the Glera grape, which was formerly and confusingly called Prosecco, these wines are notable for pleasant flavors of peach, pear, melon, green apple, and honeysuckle. Lower pressure during the carbonation process (also called the tank method) means that the bubbles are lighter and frothier than in Champagne or other traditional method sparkling wine, and less persistent. Prosecco is also a great choice to blend with orange juice for mimosas for a classic brunch beverage.

    A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

    There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
