In summer the Valdobbiadene DOCG's Col Vetoraz easier recall the search of vivacity, cheerfulness, lightness to share with friends. However, such freshness does not forget the notes of elegance and harmony that have always been the hallmark of Col Vetoraz sparkling wines.
In line with the search for pleasantness typical of these months of the year, among the labels of the company from Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene we choose two wines at the antipodes in terms of taste; Valdobbiadene DOCG Brut for dry palates and Valdobbiadene DOCG Extra Dry for those who prefer sweeter tones.
The first one is obtained from grapes from the hillside vineyards exposed to the west where ripening is ideal to produce this specific wine. Suitable for palates that prefer dry, it has an intense and dry taste without sharpness but at the same time gives delicate aromas. It can be enjoyed on fish starters, mixed fried fish, aged cheeses, even processed vegetables, first courses with seafood and baked fish dishes. The second, a friendly wine that immediately invites you to taste is the prince of aperitifs. It is obtained thanks to a careful selection of the grapes growing in the exclusive area of Valdobbiadene, has a balanced taste and elegant tones whose moderate residual sugar contributes to obtaining a great harmony of the whole. The delicately fruity aromas recall the rose, the acacia flower, the delicate vine flower, the white peach, the pear, and a slight citrus fruit. It can also be paired with meats, croutons, fresh cheeses, salmon canapés or smoked sturgeon, or with pasta dishes such as cold or legume soups or with raw fish, lobster, scampi and seafood salads accompanied with side dishes, potatoes and herbs.
Always at the forefront of the most accredited wine competitions, here is the award list recently received.
