The most original form of Prosecco is called Col Fondo. “We wanted to rediscover papa Emilio’s old technique,” they say about this wine at Case Paolin. Its backbone is given by the oldest Glera plantation of the organic estate, and comes from a steep plot. The grapes, which are harvested from 40-year-old vines, are destemmed, then kept on their skins for 18 hours before pressing. After this, the base wine that is deeper and more substantial than the usual is bottled for the secondary fermentation. During the traditional method there is no disgorging – the fondo, i.e. the bottom, or the lees, is the most important part of the wine’s finished character. It is characterised by fewer but rounder bubbles, a bone-dry palate, a mineral finish, with white flowers and citrus fruit. And how much we stir up of the tasty lees before tasting is completely up to us.
Emilio Pozzobon founded his estate where his father and grandfather used to work as day labourers. At the Case Paolin family estate, the grapes have been cultivated organically from early on. They work on 20 hectares by the River Piave, and make Proseccos and complex reds from the vineyards of different characters.
