Vibrant aromas of exotic, tropical fruits are complemented by floral notes and citrus zest through to a delightfully off-dry finish.

Producer Note

Cantina Sacchetto was founded in 1920 and today is run by Filiberto Sacchetto, alongside his son Paolo and daughter Beatrice. Together they oversee all aspects of the winemaking process, with attention, passion and great flexibility. Through innovation and investment in modern vinification techniques, they produce stunning still and sparkling wines for which the Veneto region has become famous.

Vintage

The winter was cold, with frequent rain which helped to replenish the soil’s water reserves, which sustained the vines through the hot summer period. The summer experienced hot, dry weather, allowing the grapes to reach good maturity levels. The harvest was abundant, with healthy grapes of good quality and character.

Vineyard

The grapes for this wine are grown in the province of Veneto, which is situated between the Gulf of Venice and the Alps. The Glera grapes are renowned for producing elegant sparkling wines and have been deftly blended with other local varieties to create this unique wine. Tai is the new synonym for the variety formerly known as Tocai Friulano; it produces wines with delicate apricot, citrus and honeyed aromas with almond nuances. The Verduzzo variety imparts structure and Pinot Bianco provides a light, crisp element to this delightful blend.

Winemaking

This Spumante Extra Dry was made using the Charmat method. The grapes were carefully selected and gently pressed in a horizontal press. A slow fermentation took place with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, to preserve the purity of the fruit. The secondary fermentation to produce the gentle sparkle took place in a pressure and temperature controlled autoclave. When the secondary fermentation was complete, the wine was carefully prepared for bottling.

Tasting Note

An enticing fizz with vibrant aromas of exotic, tropical fruits, complemented by floral notes and citrus zest. A fine, persistent mousse leads to a mellow and full-bodied palate with a deliciously dry and refreshing finish.
