Follador launches Kleofe Millesimato Prosecco

Follador has released a new Millesimato Prosecco in honour of Cleofe Follador – the mother of founder Gianfranco Follador.

Named Kleofe, the Millesimato Extra Brut is made using Follador’s cryomaceration technique, which allows it to use less sulphites than normally required in the winemaking process.

Follador’s Kyros system uses inert cryogenic gas to reduce the temperature of grapes, removing the air from crushed grapes and eliminating the unfavourable effects of oxygen on the wine in the pressing phase. The method was introduced by Follador in 2015, and has since helped the producer to reduce the level of sulphites used in its wines by 30%.

In a release announcing the launch of Kleofe, the family said: “Cleofe was a strong and voluptuous woman, endowed with an intuition that at that time was rarely recognized among women. She busily involved herself in the life of her family and its financial interests, supporting her husband in the management of farmland and family vineyards. This created the basis for the current success of the Follador brand.

“It’s also thanks to people like her that women today have a place in the world of work; they can be wives, mothers and entrepreneurs without one role diminishing the of another. We like to imagine that today she would be proud to see how far her family has progressed.”

Kleofe is currently only available in domestic market, but will be rolled out in further markets in the future.
