DOC Treviso Vino Frizzante Prosecco Sur Lie No Added Sulphur
Our first 'No Sulphur Added' Prosecco from the innovative Giol estate, is distinctively full-flavoured and dry, having been produced 'sur lie'. This process of lees ageing (resting on the yeasts) adds notes of crusty bread and white peach to this fizz. Please note this live and natural wine can appear a little cloudy towards the bottom, as it contains some harmless yeast deposit.
San Polo di Piave lies in the heart of the green and fertile Treviso countryside. The uniqueness of this corner of the Veneto owes to the fact that San Polo is located in a natural depression, 4 meters below the rest of the surrounding flat lands. The man behind Giol is Vittorio Carraro, a talented and charasmatic individual. His Prosecco wines are simply superb, clean and uplifting and his Pinot Grigio fresh and delicious. The family estate has been producing wines since 1427 and as he says - 'experience matters'!
