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

It has a brilliant straw yellow colour with marked greenish glints and a fine and delicate perlage. The aroma recalls hints of Granny Smith apple, wisteria and acacia flowers. The taste is fresh and fragrant with a particularly fruity aromatic return.

Food Matches

Perfect aperitif but also great with canapes or panettone.

Vinification

Vineyards located on the sunniest slopes of the Valdobbiadene hills. It is a hilly area of morainic origin with calcareous soils mixed with loam and in some cases also calcareous-clayey soil. 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 and only after 120 days of maturation on the lees the sparkling wine is ready for bottling.
