Il Colle's estate sits at the base of the Alps in the middle of the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene DOCG, which is reserved entirely for Prosecco production in the Veneto. Meaning 'the hill' in Italian, this winery takes its name from its location at the top of a hill in between the two communes of Conegliano and (very close to) Valdobbiadene. A family-owned winery, and one of the top quality producers in the region, they have recently expanded their facilities and production to match the determination and dedication the Ceschin family has had for over 30 years. Il Colle far surpasses all expectation of pristine and hand-crafted Prosecco, and has been given the top quality certification by ISO, the international body that sets quality control methodologies and certifications.
il colle prosecco brut
The Prosecco Brut is made from Glera grapes from the Conegliano hills. This excellent bubbly is made in the traditional Charmat method of making the second fermentation in closed tank, and bottling straight from there and under pressure. The result offers a straw-yellow color with a tantalizing perlage, a characteristic nose backed by a pleasant fruitiness. Dry and elegant on the mouth, it is a perfect aperitif but also pairs excellently with food. On the large scale of Italy’s most famous sparkling wine, this is a fairly small production of Prosecco.
