This sparkling wine wants to represent the pure territorial identity, the essence of a cru of the Rive di Colbertaldo, and the vintage of production, the year on the label.
Balance and decision, softness and sapidity, elegance and tradition. These are the characteristics of our “Rive”, pure expression of Valdobbiadene DOCG.
Maximum expression of the territory, a cru of the Rive di Colbertaldo, and of the season, which identifies each vintage in a peculiar way.
The Glera Grapes used for the base wine comes only from a single block in the Fedéra vineyard, in the small
town of Colbertaldo. This hill is very steep, with low-profiled soils rich in calcium and with a good amount of
clay and organic matter.
The grapes are hand harvested looking for the best moment of balance between the sugar content and the
acidity of the berries, trying to obtain the best characteristics of ripeness and freshness.
After a soft press and a cold settle the juice is ready to start the first fermentation in stainless steel tanks at
a controlled temperature of 17-19 °C.
After the first fermentation the wine stays on the fine lees with few rackings and batonnage.
In about 5 months, in spring time, the base wine is ready to start the second fermentation in the autoclaves
with the Charmat-Martinotti Method.
Once we obtain the bubbles by natural fermentation the sparkling wine is chilled and rests for about 60-70
days before being bottled, to obtain an extra fine bubble, for a soft and smooth perlage.
From every vintage we produce only about 7.000 bottles of this wine.
This wine was born in 2014 to toast the 60 years of Valter Miotto.
Balance and decision, peculiar characteristics o fan important wine and of a grapegrower who loves his land.
