WHITE WINE: La Basseta produces natural wines from young vines (8 years on average) planted on flat lowlands along the river Piave. This is a natural sparkling wine, very interesting both for look and taste. The tanks contains E.M. (effective micro-organisms) ceramic chips as means of controlling aromas and flavours in unsulfured wines.

Grape Variety: 100% Glera (known as Prosecco, before a reform of the law) 
Terroir: Cobblestone ground; a mix of clay and sand
Vinification system: soft press, with pneumatic weight; temperature controlled fermentation (18-20C°)
Wine Making Process: the grapes are harvested by hand, in small boxes, during the second half of September. The first fermentation happens in stainless steel tanks for six months on its lees. The secondary fermentation happens naturally in the bottle during the following 6 months.

Organoleptic Characteristics

Colour: intense straw yellow with sandy reflections; cloudy looking because unfiltered.

Bouquet: very intense and persistent nose with notes of apples, pears and candied citrus fruits.
Taste: To the palate it translates into a complex and lingering aftertaste. With biscuits and yeasty flavours this wine shows an excellent freshness and minerality which contribute to its full taste.

Alcohol Content: 11,5 % Vol.
Food matching: light vegetable starters and aperitifs; fresh charcuterie like Soppressa veneta, and relatively young and fresh cheeses. Drunk on its own is a perfect wine for pre-dinner conversation.
