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.
Its aromatic freshness offers a bouquet of red fruits and floral scents in particular notes of pomegranate and rose. On the palate it is silky and full, with a very pleasant balance.
Serve as an apéritif.
Whole white 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 red grapes, after pressing, are put into tanks where a soft maceration for extraction of colour and a few tannins takes place at a controlled temperature of 22-23°C. At the same time the aroma is enhanced. The white must and a small part of the red wine are mixed. The resulting cuvée 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 being left for at least two months in contact with the yeasts, the sparkling wine is ready for bottling.

Decanter 2022, Prosecco on a High, 93 points: "An addition to the extensive range of this top Prosecco Superiore producer, known for its award-winning Cartizze. This has trademark charm on the nose, where delicately aromatic violets and rose mingle with cherry pie, while the palate has a rich, creamy texture with underlying acidity and salty almonds on the long finish. An irresistible aperitif that would also work with shellfish." Decanter 2021, Must Try Fizz, 90 points: Fairly intense, with fresh scents of raspberry, strawberry, melon, cherry, apple and pear. The palate is soft, smooth and creamy, with summer-fruits sweetness mixed with gentle orchard fruits. Bright and moreish, it has a long, fresh finish and a lick of salinity."Forbes, March 2021, The Best New Prosecco Rosés For Spring: "With subtle notes of pomegranate, elegant bubbles and a clean, dry finish, Villa Sandi’s new il Fresco Prosecco Rosé DOC Millesimato is the ideal prosecco rosé to enjoy on an early spring evening. This prosecco rosé joins Villa Sandi’s existing collection of good-value proseccos, including additional vintage (millesimato) varieties. (As per regulations, all prosecco DOC Rosés must have “Millesimato” stated on the label along with the vintage.) "
