The Bronca sisters, Antonella and Ersiliana, established their estate 20 years ago, to specialize in sparkling Prosecco from their 20 hectares of vineyard of old-vine Prosecco. The wine is classified as a Prosecco Colli Conegliano DOCG, the region having recently achieved DOCG status as of April 2010.

The Sorelle Bronca Winery produces traditional local wines which demonstrate how man is able to get the best from nature. The wines are grown in the family-owned vineyards which are cared for with genuine passion. The Winery’s research focuses on finding natural solutions; this resulted in ground-breaking experimentation with new, more natural vine-protection treatments as well as exploration into spontaneous fermentation in the vineyard. The Bronca sisters strive to bring a modern vision to traditional techniques, one such example being the creation of companion crops from a variety of plant species.

This sur lie Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG is a pure expression of its natural home where sensitivity and skilled hands are preferred over technology. The grapes (100% Glera) come from mature vines grown on high hillsides giving the wine a slightly mineral quality. The wine is made following the Classic Method using in-bottle refermentation without dégorgement. The natural yeasts that remain indicate that the wine is genuine, and healthy.

Tasting Notes

The wine is straw yellow with greenish highlights; it presents typical light deposits of yeast in the bottom of the bottle. On the nose hints of yellow fruit are first to be detected, followed by elegant floral notes and an intense aroma of acacia flower and a light mineral sensation. This is a well sustained, balanced and elegant wine where the perfectly-integrated carbon dioxide adds to its character.

This wine is perfect as an aperitif and should be enjoyed with dry pastries or savoury tarts.
