Winemaker Notes

Nestled in the hills of the eastern Veneto is one of the most wonderful wine growing regions – the Valdobbaidene. In April 2010 this small area was established as a DOCG region, the highest quality level that can be given to an Italian wine. Glera (formerly known as Prosecco) grapes are grown on the steep hillsides, 100% hand-harvested, and crafted into the prized Santa Margherita Prosecco DOCG. With peach and apple aromas, this fresh and balanced sparkling wine has fine perlage with a refreshing finish. Prosecco di Valdobbiadene is excellent as an aperitif, ideal with seafood dishes and after meals with light desserts.The color is straw yellow, with an aroma that has a lively vinosity characterized by a fine fruity fragrance and an elegant long-lived mousse. On the palate the wine tastes pleasantly dry with a well-balanced acidity, making the wine fresh and lively.

“The texture of this wine deftly balances the richness of ripe stone fruit with the grip of fruit skins, like apple and apricot. A hint of white pepper adds subtle complexity, while the finish feels fresh and elegant. Try it with toasted almonds.”

 

Bubbles full of charm and history: in the fifties, Santa Margherita was one of the first Italian Wineries to produce Spumante wines from Glera grapes. This tradition is renewed nowadays by means of the trustworthy interpretations of Prosecco Docg and Doc but also through more modern, innovative alternatives combined with just as noble grape varieties such as Müller Thurgau or Malbech for the Rosé version of the “52” label. This  savoir-faire made of elegance, fine effervescence and top quality can also be found in Pinot Grigio Metodo Classico: a wine that has no match in the world!
