Caposaldo Prosecco Brut

Caposaldo Prosecco Brut 750ml       
Sku: 1494415*

Caposaldo blends a handcrafted, artisanal approach to winemaking with cutting-edge quality standards and techniques. Fruit is hand harvested from 100% DOC-rated 20-year-old vines that yield fewer but more intensely flavored grapes. Vineyards are located on hillsides in Pieve di Soligo, one of the 15 communes allowed for Prosecco production, nestled between the famed DOCG provinces of Conegliano and Valdobbiadine. The wine is crafted using preferred natural fermentation in autoclave, which results in a superior effervescent quality. Like all Prosecco, Caposaldo Prosecco is nonvintage.

Tasting notes
Bright with persistent bubbles, the wine has a fruity aroma of citrus, green apple and acacia blossoms. On the palate, the elegant, brut-style wine has a pleasant acidity and freshness and a soft, round mouthfeel.

 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points (Jun 2014)
Pale lemon juice yellow. Medium-size, silvery, moderately vigorous effervescence. Steely, earthy, somewhat muted bouquet. Tart, lemony/citrusy, green apple flavors are abundant and borderline sour on palate. Zesty aftertaste is definitively astringent. Excellent aperitif. Great Value
