Fantinel "One&Only" Prosecco DOC Brut Vintage 2018
Friuli - An evocative name giving a glimpse on the philosophy that has marked its conception and emphasizing its uniqueness in Friuli Venezia Giulia region. At that basis of this leadership in Prosecco regional scene there is a very peculiar and sophisticated production process, with a fundamental starting point: honouring the land in its natural rhythm and taking from it the best fruits, on the basis of the respect of the plant vegetative cycle.
At Fantinel Estate in Tauriano di Spilimbergo, in Friuli Grave area, the particular territory and climate are so generous that give our grapes rare qualities, especially for Sparkling wines. From a dedicated single vineyard, with a very low yield per hectare, careful hands select the healthiest grapes donated by the vintage. A gentle crushing allows to extract a preciously rich juice, that is directly introduced in “autoclave” steel tanks to start the fermentation and, in a single cycle, the sparkling process aiming at strengthening the fruits primary aromas. After 120 days of maturation, Fantinel “One & Only” Prosecco is ready.
Once uncorked, its distinctiveness can be immediately perceived. An explosion, with a great elegance, of white flowers, harmonizing joyfully with deep fruity aromatic essences. The impact on the nose is a graceful prelude of what is reserved to the palate. An extraordinary balance, mixing a pleasant acidity with a velvety smoothness, reveals a full structure that, with intensity, captivates the whole mouth and offers a delightful after-taste. Produced in limited edition and conceived for the most educated wine-lovers, Fantinel “One & Only” Prosecco is the highest expression of company quality.
