Notable
DescriptionVilla Marcello Prosecco DOC hails from the province of Treviso, one of the finest growing regions of Prosecco. Once used by the Tiepolo family as hunting grounds in the 17th century, the Villa Marcello estate in Fontanelle was given new life when the land was converted to vineyards by the Contessa Elisabetta Galvani Onigo. Today the estate is run by her descendants Countess Alessandra Marcello del Majno, Countess Andriana Marcello del Majno and her son Giovanni Mazzei who launched the first vintage of this Prosecco. The estate covers 57 hectares, of which 26.5 are planted under vine. The vineyards are situated at 25 meters above sea level where the soil is silty clay for structured, yet elegant wines. As with the other Mazzei estates, Villa Marcello is managed with minimal intervention and with the utmost environmental care.
VinificationFourteen days of primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 57ºF with specially selected yeast, followed by four months of lees aging. Second fermentation occurs over approximately 60 days in autoclave at a controlled temperature.
