How it is produced
Rive di Colbertaldo is Maschio Dei Cavalieri’s flagship.
The grapes selected for this bottle, a real example of winemaking excellence, are exclusively handpicked.
The environmental features of the lower Rive area greatly enhance the base extract of the grapes and the result is a brilliant straw yellow colour and a mellow, fruity taste, which introduces to the nose a real triumph of perfumes that recall pears, apricots and a slight hint of tropical fruits.
The “Rive” are the most suitable areas for the Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG zone. In particular, Rive di Colbertaldo, a hamlet in the Municipality of Vidor, has the most ancient vineyard plantations set on the slopes on the left banks of the Piave River, protected by the Alps and well exposed to sunlight. Outstanding organoleptic features are also guaranteed by stricter regulations imposed on the Rive production, such as: lower yields, exclusive production of the Superiore category and the obligation to specify the locality and year of harvest on the label. The Regulation acknowledges 43 Rive areas located within this territory.
