Fresh toasts to Col Vetoraz’s summer, where harmony is at home

 

The welcome wine par excellence knows how to adapt to every season of the year but you know, in summer it more easily recalls the desire for liveliness, joy, lightness and sharing in friendship. And what summer would it be without exchanging toasts and smiles? Col Vetoraz puts his answer in the glasses giving for the most beautiful season of the year so much lively freshness, but without forgetting the notes of elegance and harmony that have always been the distinctive feature of his sparkling wines.

In line with the desire for pleasantness typical of these months of the year, among the labels of the company from Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene we specially choose two wines at the antipodes in terms of taste; Valdobbiadene DOCG Brut for dry palates and Valdobbiadene DOCG Extra Dry for those who prefer more sweet tones.

The first is obtained from grapes from the hillside vineyards exposed to the west where ripening is ideal to produce this specific type, suitable for palates that prefer dry, intense and dry taste without sharpness but at the same time gives delicate aromas. It can be enjoyed on fish starters, mixed fried fish, aged cheeses, even processed vegetables, first courses with seafood and baked fish dishes. The second, friendly that immediately invites you to taste is the true prince of aperitifs. It is obtained thanks to a careful selection of the grapes that grow in the exclusive area of ​​Valdobbiadene, has a balanced taste and elegant tones whose moderate residual sugar contributes to obtaining a great harmony of the whole. The delicately fruity aromas recall the rose, the acacia flower, the delicate vine flower, the white peach, the pear, and a slight citrus fruit. It can also be paired with meats, croutons, fresh cheeses, salmon canapés or smoked sturgeon, or with pasta dishes such as cold or legume soups or with raw fish, lobster, scampi and seafood salads accompanied with side dishes. potatoes and herbs.

“We are experiencing a moment of significant evolution – commented Alberto and Veronica Ruggeri – that sees us more and more protagonists on international scenarios. For some time now we have been working in foreign markets, some of which are happily consolidating, and for us this is a continuous challenge to confront ourselves on new territories, open to meet a different audience of future wine lovers, to whom we firstly aim to tell our story, which is worth knowing to fully appreciate our wines ”.

Le Colture is a wine company strongly linked to its territory, the Valdobbiadene DOCG, and which sums up in itself the deep meaning of living and cultivating the vine on this land. With its 40 hectares of direct ownership, it has been present in the territory since 1983, but its cornerstone lies in being above all a family, which every day of the year commits itself to enhancing the Prosecco Superiore di Valdobbiadene DOCG. Cesare Ruggeri, father of Silvia, Alberto and Veronica, is Le Colture’s intuitive mind, the true “vigneron” and it’s thanks to him if today we produce 800.000 bottles per year. At the end of the 80s he understood the potential and the strength of Prosecco Superiore and it was then that a small farm made up of a few cows began its transformation; starting from the ’90s with lots of sacrifices Cesare bought some land so as to make Le Colture evolve in a company with a complete production chain, but above all self-sufficient with its own grapes.

“The Prosecco Superiore is an immediate wine – continues Veronica Ruggeri – so over the years our primary purpose has always been to bring home healthy grapes that we follow scrupulously and with extreme care in their growth. Each of us is a part of this reality, starting from our mother Bianca, pillar of this company together with our father Cesare, up to us three brothers, Silvia, Alberto and myself. With our sparkling wines we communicate with passion and authenticity our life, our land and our history into the world. “
