From the Rive di San Pietro di Barbozza, this sparkling wine offers the finest quality of the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG, grown on the most arduous hillsides, where the grapevine is often the oldest. The term Rive identifies with a steep terrain, particularly precipitous, where the cultivation of grapevines is particularly difficult. This vintage, Extra Brut sparkling wine is produced in a limited edition of just 17,852 bottles.
Ideal pairings are delicate appetizers (raw fish), but it is especially good served throughout the meal. It can best express its dry taste and flavour, as supported by its excellent structure, with fatty fish-based dishes.
