S.C. 1931 Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Pas Dosè Metodo Classico
The glera grapes grown in the Conegliano hills gave us a base wine of impressive complexity and minerality. The second fermentation in the bottle, in accord with the classic method, enhanced its fragrances and aromatic qualities, imbuing this sparkling wine with a striking personality. It boasts an intense bouquet of hazelnuts and juicy apple and pear, alongside hints of acacia honey, freshbaked rolls, and apple cake.
The wine matures sur lie for 3 months. After the second fermentation in the bottle, the wine rests sur lie for 16-18 months, and is then disgorged and topped up with the same wine, with no liqueur d’expédition.
Excellent as an aperitif wine, S.C. 1931 is as superb partner to antipasti and risottos as well, and should be tried with roast poultry and veal. It will show good development during the two years following the vintage date; if it is well stored, its nose and palate will grow in complexity even five years after harvest.
