Stellina Di Notte Prosecco is made using the Charmat sparkling wine process. The juice is cold fermented to preserve the grapes’ fruitiness and then kept the wine sur lie (on yeast) for three weeks with frequent bâ tonnage (stirring) for rich texture on the palate. A second fermentation, with sur lie aging, develops the wine’s aromas and fine, persistent bubbles.
Prosecco grapes are hand harvested from vineyards in the foothills of the Alps, in Italy’s northern Veneto region. This cool viticulture region forms an arc between the Italian Alps and the Adriatic Sea. The region’s high altitudes assure cool summers retain the grape acidity that gives liveliness to sparkling wines, while warmth from its proximity to the Adriatic Sea assures full ripening. The Guyot-trained vines are deeply rooted in well-draining alluvial marl soils—-composed of clay, limestone and rock—that are believed to contribute to the unique minerality of Prosecco wines.
From the alpine and Adriatic coastal vineyards surrounding Venice to the hilltop vineyards of Tuscany, Stellina di Notte harvests the classic Italian grape varietals to create authentic, food-friendly wines for everyday celebrations. Pinot Grigio, Prosecco and Chianti are carefully crafted in accordance with Italy’s strict quality standards. Winemaker Alessandro Perini enhances centuries-old tradition with modern innovation and technique to translate the vivace of Italy to the glass.
