Verduzzo is a grape that was commonly found in Veneto and Friuli but slowley started to dissapear over the last 30 years. It was used to make a semi sparkling white and blended with Glera to make Prosecco. We decided to give our Verduzzo a new lease of life and thus decided to make a aromatic dessert wine from it. Grapes are selected and harvested by hand during the last week of October thus undergoing a natural appasimento on the vine. Soil type is argilaceous and gravelly and plant density is 4000 vines per hectar.
