Sparkling wine fermented in the bottle preserved on the yeasts

Su Alto is a sparkling Glera-based wine that is re-fermented in the bottle on native yeasts and aged for at least 4 months at 2000 metres altitude at the foot of Mount Civetta, in the heart of the Dolomites. Antica Quercia (Ancient Oak) is an old tree nestled among unique hills which are perfect for the Glera vines, on the axis that connects the high peaks of the Dolomites to Venice. The family behind these vineyards dedicate their life making wine that respects the rhythms and the rules of nature. Their aim is to harmonise every choice they make, without forcing nature, as if everything was a continuous flow of energy, from the grape to the bottle. Sugar content: 0 g/l, free sulphites 0 g/l.

Tasting notes

Straw yellow in colour, can be slightly hazy due to the presence of suspended yeasts. The nose is very delicate, with floral and fruity hints of citrus fruit and dried apricots. On the palate, the bubbles are gentle and delicate, the fine fruity notes come through again, the finish is tangy and dry.

Food pairing

Great as an aperitif with savoury snacks, cheeses and cold meats.

Area of production

The wine is made of Glera trained on double-arched canes on the western slope of the vineyard Antica Quercia, which is on the Scomigo hills in a small district of Conegliano. The soil is made of a boulder clay mixture of glacial origins. The vines are characterised by a pre-alpine cool temperate climate with average rainfall of 1250 mm/year.

Production process

Manual harvesting in crates, destemming and pressing of the grapes, indigenous foot inoculation and fresh fermentation. Ageing on the yeasts over the winter and bottling on the fourth new moon of the year following the harvest. Further ageing for at least four months at 2000 metres at the foot of Mount Civetta in the heart of the Dolomites.
