Brand Description

The Bonotto family has been making wine for as long as anyone can remember. But their renowned Le Contesse winery was officially founded in 1976 when Bonotto, with the help of his father's life savings, purchased a property in Treviso province once owned by the Tiepolo countesses, one of the area's most famous families and the inspiration for the winery's name — le Contesse (literally, "the countesses"). After completing his degree at the Center for Experimental Viticulture in the city of Conegliano, Loris set his sights on making the greatest sparkling wine he possibly could. Over years of trial and error, he ultimately developed a revolutionary approach to making Prosecco: instead of using two separate vessels (as called for in the classic tank method of Prosecco production, he uses one, an autoclave. In other words, the grape must (juice) never leaves the pressurized vat where it is vinified. As a result, there is no exposure to oxygen (until bottling) and the wine never oxidizes — at all. This ensures that the finished wine retains the original fresh, fruity character of the newly harvested grapes. Today, the Bonotto family, led by Loris' son Davide and his wife Francesca, calls the process "single fermentation".

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking
