Technical information
The base wine is put into pressurized tanks for the prise de mousse. There it ferments for 18-20 days, with the aid of selected yeasts, at a controlled temperature of 14-16 °C (57-61 °F). When the desired pressure has been obtained (around 6 bars), the wine is chilled to - 4° C in order to arrest the fermentation and encourage stabilization. The sparkling wine is then kept at a controlled temperature of 8-10 °C (46-50 °F) for at least a month, in order to favor its natural maturation in contact with the yeasts that have deposited on the bottom of the pressurized tank. At the end of this phase, filtration and isobaric bottling is carried out.

Tasting note
A sparkling wine with a clean, pleasantly fruity bouquet, reminiscent of rennet apples and peach blossom. Its flavor is rounded and well-balanced.

Serving suggestions
Perfect as an aperitif, it is ideal with fish or cheese appetizers, or even with a meal of delicately flavored dishes.

History
Santa Margherita was founded in 1935 by Count Gaetano Marzotto. As a sign of the importance of this project, the Count gave this new company the name of his beloved wife, Margherita. Prosecco sparkling wine was made as long ago as 1952, when in the space of a few decades a territory wine was transformed into a global phenomenon.
Regional Information
The Conegliano-Valdobbiadene region of gentle hillsides produces one of the most widely-sold Italian wines: Prosecco. It has a soil rich in components, a climate with substantial differences between day- and night-time temperatures, a pre-Alpine area that is still predominantly uncontaminated, and a unique terroir. The wines produced here are characterized by very pronounced aromas in which floral and mineral notes predominate and in which crisp acidity highlights their freshness.

delicious

This is the nicest Prosecco Ive had in a long while. More expensive than I would normally pay, but worth it.

very drinkable

I was given the bottle for my birthday and not usually a fan of Prosecco but this was very smooth and easy to drink! Lovely colour and plenty of bubbles!
