VALDOBBIADENE PROSECCO SUPERIORE DOCG MILLESIMATO RIVE

The Millesimato Rive available only in the fully sparkling style, represent the essence of terroir. It is produced ,in fact, exclusively from grapes that come from a single Commune of hamlet/village therein, thus highlighting the characteristic that a particular area confers on its wine.
The Rive Wines allow one, therefore, to get to know the manifold expressions of Conegliano Valdobbiadene in detail. The term “Rive” indicates, in the local dialect, vineyards that are on steep ground, and the aim of the category is to underline the special quality of – and the many differences between – the various sites within the Denomination. For the “Rive” maximum yelds are reduced to 13 tonnes per hectare; the grapes must picked by hand and the vintage must be showm on the label. In the Conegliano Valdobbiadene zone there are 43 Rive, wich offer an equal number of district territorial expression.
