Grapes: 100% Glera (the grape formerly called Prosecco)
Caposaldo blends a handcrafted, artisanal approach to winemaking with cutting-edge quality standards and techniques. Fruit is hand harvested from 100% DOC-rated 20-year-old vines that yield fewer but more intensely flavored grapes. Vineyards are located on hillsides in Pieve di Soligo, one of the 15 communes allowed for Prosecco production, nestled between the famed DOCG provinces of Conegliano and Valdobbiadine. The wine is crafted using preferred natural fermentation in autoclave, which results in a superior effervescent quality. Like all Prosecco, Caposaldo Prosecco is nonvintage.

Bright with persistent bubbles, the wine has a fruity aroma of citrus, green apple and acacia blossoms. On the palate, the elegant, brut-style wine has a pleasant acidity and freshness and a soft, round mouthfeel.
Excellent paired with light cheeses, prosciutto and other antipasti, fried foods, light pastas and desserts.
