The grape variety
The grapes that make up the base of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore are the fruit of the Prosecco vine, today identified with the historic synonym Glera. Glera is a white grape characterised by yellow-golden fruit in long, straggly, and winged clusters. Its cultivation in this territory, moulded by the Piave River and its lateral branches, makes it possible to obtain spectacular levels of quality thanks to the outstanding variety in the geological composition of the soils.
These ideal terrains are further enhanced by the diverse exposure of the hillsides, the varying altitudes, and the many micro-climates found in this zone, marked by notable temperature changes between the day and night. All these characteristics are responsible for the organoleptic richness of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore, the notes and bouquets of which vary from hillside to hillside.
