Vinification Details: The juice from the grapes undergo a short fermentation to a low alcohol in temperature controlled conditions. The resulting base wines are then blended by the winemaker to achieve the best balance of freshness and fruit character. Following this process the wine is fermented a second time. As the wine is placed under pressure the carbon dioxide gas that is produced as a bi-product of the fermentation is dissolved in the liquid, this is subsequently released as the bubbles that make the wine sparkle.
History: Prosecco began to be made in its modern, light, dry style at some point in the early 1960's. Canti prosecco was born in the early 2000's when Fratelli Martini, a company with a long history of producing high quality prosecco under other labels started the Canti brand.
Regional Information: Prosecco is a small sub-region of the Veneto in North Eastern Italy. The vineyards are mainly on hillsides which ensure the vines get good exposure to the ripening warmth and sunlight. The cooling winds that roll down from the alpine region to the North ensure that the grapes don't over ripen and retain the fresh, green fruit characteristics that contribute to the wine's signature style.
