The Emissary DOC
The Emissary Prosecco DOC Treviso Spumante Extra-Brut.
The Emissary’s first discovery. Light, dry, fine, and perfectly balanced. The perfect bottle of fizz for a relaxed afternoon aperitivo, Italian style.
Terroir & Climate
At the foothills of "Colli Asolani", 150m above sea level, these sunny, south-facing slopes benefit from a breezy, mild, temperate climate that results in exceptional grapes. The soil is a balanced mixture of silt, clay and sand.
Harvest & Winemaking
The perfect terroir for growing grapes is further enhanced by knowledge passed down from generation to generation at the family vineyard. In early September, the grapes are carefully selected and slowly pressed for their delicate, fresh juice. Once the primary fermentation has taken place, the secondary fermentation commences where the still white wine will be transformed into a magnificent spumante. For this particular prosecco, very little sugar is added during this process, resulting in a dry, refreshing prosecco with fewer calories.
Brilliant straw yellow. Floral and mineral nose with a touch of citrus, displays delicate notes of white flowers. On the palate it is lively, yet elegant and very refreshing with a dry finish.
