Denominazione di Origine Controllata
The grapes used for Prosecco DOC are mainly Glera, a grape quality typical of northeastern Italy since the Roman age. Glera is therefore a type of white grape. Its branches are dark hazelnut and they produce a large amount of straw-yellow grape clusters. The territory is very difficult to cultivate but extremely fascinating, thanks to the vineyards located on the high hills that have steep slopes. The production area of Prosecco DOC is located in the north-eastern area of Italy and more precisely in the territories included in the 4 provinces of Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Gorizia, Pordenone, Trieste and Udine) and in 5 provinces of Veneto (Belluno, Padua, Treviso, Venice, Vicenza), one of the most beautiful areas of the Italian peninsula. Only when the harvest, vinification and bottling take place in the provinces of Treviso, the special mention Prosecco DOC Treviso can be used on the bottle. And this is the case with the Cuvée Leganza. Pale straw yellow color with slight greenish reflections, fine and persistent perlage with abundant foam, characteristic, aromatic scent, rich in floral and fruity scents. The flavor is slightly sweet, fresh, savory, persistent, with a fruity finish. Excellent both as an aperitif and to accompany first courses, appetizers, cheeses or seafood.
