Description
Set in a sixteenth-century Palladian style Villa, the Moretti Polegato family run one of the most attractive and lauded wineries in the Veneto. Making Prosecco that is unlike any other in each of the price categories that their wines occupy, there is an arresting and unmatched complexity, freshness and balance to all of their wines, right the way from Cartizze to Frizzante. Part of their success is the care in the vineyard - they are not yet organic, but the soils have low pH levels and the grapes that arrive to the winery are slightly less ripe that others tend to be. In the winery then, there has to be a delicate treatment of grapes and this results in wines with naturally higher balancing acidity. This may seem an obvious decision, but the skill and effort needed to execute this is considerable and so many other wineries do not bother - instead, they pick grapes with varying ripeness levels and once the juice is fermented, they add acid to artificially balance the wines. When we tasted these wines for the first time, the quality, from the get go, genuinely stopped us in our tracks! Villa Sandi's wines are deservedly highly-regarded and multi award-winning. Il Fresco is the winner of the Best Prosecco in Italy award for a record-holding 13 times. It's no less than it deserves, but as for us - we just love it.
