Casa Coste Piane Frizzante Naturalmenta, Valdobbiadene, Prosecco, Italy 2020
Loris Follador is from a long line of farmers in Valdobbiadene. Thanks to his father and grandfather, Loris and his two sons have never had to plant a vine. Their vineyards, featuring 60+ year old vines, are absurdly steep and the soil is very shallow, hitting solid limestone or sandstone rock in a few centimeters. There is no disgorgement, so the expired lees remain in the bottle adding further complexity, but also some cloudiness. A killer wine for a picnic or lunch but not recommended for use in a Mimosa.
Soil: Limestone and Sandstone
Farming Practices: Organic
