Ballancin DOCG Prosecco Superiore
This extra dry Prosecco is 100% Glera and the grapes are grown in the hilly area north of Treviso between the towns of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano. The Ballancin story in the vineyards and winery closely reflects the tradition and typical features of this territory in the morainic hills surrounding Solighetto, province of Treviso, ideal for exalting Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG. Fermentation in pressure tanks. Maturation in steel vats. Pris di mousse 30 days. Second fermentation Charmat method. Store in a cool and dark cellar. Serve at 4-5 °C, open when ready to serve. Vini Ballancin was established in the 1960s when Lino Ballancin came home from a long stint of hard work in Switzerland and purchased some land from the Brandolini Counts. He had the foresight to cultivate vineyards, and now the winery is run by his sons Sergio and Antonio who have worked in the vineyards since childhood. Now, after studying at the Conegliano Oenological School and gaining experience through many years of hard work, the sons are proud to belong to this land of universally renowned wine and bubbly. Lino Vallancin was awarded the title of Cavaliere della Repubblica (the equivalent of a British knighthood) in 2012.
