Follador to release ‘experimental’ Prosecco

Follador will unveil the 2015 vintage of its Torri di Credazzo Cuvée Millesimato DOCG later this month, produced using a new winemaking technique which it claims cancels the negative effects of oxidation during pressing.

Described as the result of an “experiment” performed for the very first time, Follador has not divulged specifics of the technique used. But said its use, combined with the use of inert cryogenic gas, “essentially cancelled the unfavorable effects of oxygen in the pressing phase”.

“In this way the final product is more fresh, full-bodied and satisfying; it’s fragrant with hints of apple, peach and rose petals is even more intense and persistent, as well as the fine and delicate perlage”, it added in a statement announcing the wine’s imminent release.

Made from 100% Glera grapes from the vineyards of Valdobbiadene DOCG, the Prosecco will be unveiled during the Vinitaly trade fair next week, which will mark its 50th year in 2016.

Its name derives from the remains of a fortified complex dating back to feudal times, built for defensive purposes.

Follador described the 2015 vintage as having a “favourable climate” producing “extraordinary quality fruit”.
