Description

The first visual impression is already impressive, with a good clingy, fairly compact mousse and an appealing fine perlage. Its distinctly fruity aroma palette, composed of candied orange, quince, lemon and nectarine is perceived with equal intensity in the taste. The refreshingly pleasant acidity provides the necessary balance and lively drinking pleasure.

Producer

Paladin

The vineyards of the Paladin winery are located in the border area between the Eastern Veneto and Friuli, where wine was already being grown in Roman times. At that time, the wines of this area were shipped in amphorae from the nearby sea ports to Rome, as reported by the historian Pliny.

The company was founded 50 years ago by Valentino Paladin, and today is jointly managed by his three children: Lucia, Carlo and Roberto.

The calcareous clay soils were formed about 20,000 years ago, after the last ice age. At a depth of 50 to 100 centimetres, one runs into limestone, the so-called Caranto, which gives the wines their body, richness and flavour intensity. The region has a rather mild climate. To the north, the Dolomites and the Alps provide protection from the cold; to the south-east, the Adriatic has a moderating influence.

Grape variety

Glera

Under a new name

Do you think you recognise these grapes? You probably do, albeit under a different name. Previously it was called Prosecco, and had been since the 18th century. It gladly shared this description with the sparkling and pearl wine produced from it, until its producers laid claim to the name exclusively for their products. They did this so winemakers outside the Prosecco area in Veneto could not produce sparkling wines with the name Prosecco. Before, they could do it quite easily, just by using the right grape and writing the name on the label. Therefore, the Prosecco grape variety has been called Glera since 2010. This is an old synonym for Friuli. One thing has not changed: the Glera grape remains the top dog in the Prosecco area. It provides subtly flowery, lemony white wines which improve further with interaction with carbon-dioxide.

Veneto: land of the Amarone and Prosecco

Veneto stretches from the Alpine foothills, through the flat Po Valley, to the Gulf of Venice on the Adriatic coast. Two types of wine in particular have been able to celebrate spectacular successes here in recent years: Amarone growths impress with their opulent body and force, while the cheerfully bubbling Proseccos please with their fruity, grape freshness. But the region also produces drinkable everyday wines, including the white Soave and the red Bardolino.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.
