Giustino B. Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry D.O.C.G.
Area of Production: Valdobbiadene , Italy
Varietal: Glera (traditionally called Prosecco)
Wine Notes: Subtle highlights of jasmine flower and stone fruit. The bouquet is nuanced but it is also powerful in terms of its pristine sharpness and focus.
Wine Making Technique: Dedicated to Giustino Bisol, who founded the winery in 1950, this sparkling wine is the fruit of extensive trials and experiments with particular selections and techniques, from the vines to the bottle. The Giustino B. therefore embodies the living expression of our experience and determination in the search for the very best and of our passionate dedication to the grape itself (traditionally called Prosecco). After the first fermentation the wine matures in the big vats at a low temperature until spring and then it is transferred in the pressure-vats for the second fermentation. It remains with its yeast until the bottling that is carried on at the beginning of June.
Estate & Wines: Ruggeri is one of the five founding producers of Prosecco, established by Giustino Bisol in 1950 in Santo Stefano, when commercialization of Prosecco began.
In 1990 they relocated to the town of Valdobbiadene. They have long standing relationships with about 110 growers as most vineyards are on small plots of land, similar to Burgundy where no one owns very large acreage. Ruggeri sends their viticulturist to work with their growers, insuring consistency and quality. After hand harvesting the grapes, they are brought to the winery which has 2 independent receiving lines and 5 soft presses, ensuring that the grapes are processed immediately upon arrival. In 2019, Ruggeri was the first Prosecco producer to receive the prestigious Gambero Rosso "Star" classification, which is only given to wineries who have earned 10 or more Tre Bicchieri awards. They are extremely passionate, dedicated and consistent with 60% of their wines sold in Italy, and the rest distributed to 35 countries worldwide.
Recommended Pairings: Can be enjoyed as an aperitif or to enhance the close of a meal.
