Case Paolin Montello e Colli Asolani Prosecco Col Fondo
From the winery:
It is with hands dyed red from the Montello soil that the Pozzobon family created Case Paolin. In the early 1970s, Emilio, the founder, a farmer and son of farmers, bought the estate where his father and his grandfather had worked as sharecroppers. Abandoning silkworms, he devoted himself entirely to the vineyard and passed on this passion to his three boys: Diego, Adelino and Mirco. Twenty years later, the children grew up to be men, ready to take over the reins of the winery, to transform it and lead it into the new century. In 2013, the first grandson was born, little Emilio.
This Asolo Prosecco DOCG ‘Col Fondo’ (With Sediment) was born from the desire to rediscover papà Emilio’s old technique in the production of Prosecco. From the selection of the grapes from our oldest vineyard and the maceration on skins for 18 hours, comes a base wine with strong personality and minerality. Then follows a second fermentation in the bottle in accordance with the traditional method but without disgorgement. The presence of yeast in the bottom of the bottle is indicative of genuineness and healthiness. When it comes to wine tasting COL FONDO is a pure expression of its territory: a nose of flowers, yellow fruit and bread crust with a deep mineral sense in the palate. We recommend gently turning the bottle upside-down 2-3 times before uncorking.
