Villa Sandi

Owned and run by Giancarlo Moretti Polegato and his family, the Villa Sandi estate lies in the heart of the 1068 hectares of the Cartizze area, between the hamlets of Santo Stefano and San Pietro di Barbozza, in the municipality of Valdobbiadene. A sparkling jewel protected by the hills of the Marca Trevigiana, Villa Sandi is a Palladian style masterpiece dating back to 1622, and it is also the main office of the company. The Villa rises from a fertile countryside in which fields and farms, nowadays as well as in the past, pay homage to the local history. The diverse soils of this area of Italy enable Villa Sandi to produce a wonderful array of Proseccos and high quality still red and white wines.

Tasting Notes

Very pale straw yellow in appearance. Intense aromas of fruit and acacia flowers. Persistent perlage and a harmonious finish.

Food Matches

Excellent as a aperitif. A good accompaniment to fish marinated with delicate aromatic herbs, and herb-based starters.

Vinification

Whole grapes are put into the pneumatic press for soft pressing and the resulting must, after a first racking, is put into controlled temperature tanks where it remains until it is used for the production of the sparkling wine. The must with added yeast cultures selected by Villa Sandi is then put into vessels where fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 15-16˚C to enhance all the harvest fragrances. Upon reaching the required alcohol and sugar content fermentation is stopped by refrigeration. After a short settling period, the sparkling wine is ready for bottling.
