Costadilà, 330slm 2019
A brand new wine from Costadilà. 100% Glera from a vineyard at 330m (see what they've done there!) above sea level. Macerated with its skins for just a short time in comparison to most of their other wines which yields a fresher wine full of citrus and delicate bubbles. Quite sediment forward this one so swirl before opening.
In 2006 in the hills above Conegliano in the province of Treviso, Ernesto Cattel embarked on a project that went well against the grain. The rolling hills of the area are incredibly beautiful but with the popularity of its much drunk export, Prosecco, agricultural practices changed. Vines are now predominantly planted in the easily mechanisable and sprayable valleys. Spraying is often done by helicopter and there was a rumour that a local school had received a treatment during break time.
