More Info

Valdo's history dates to 1926 and is marked by constant, steady attention to quality and authenticity and allegiance to its district. Valdobbiadene is a picturesque town in the Veneto region, just below the foothills of the Italian Alps. Its cool climate and hillside vineyards are ideal for growing grapes that make crisply refreshing sparkling wines.
Numero 10 ranks first at the 'Valdo School.' This Spumante champion wine was made with the Classic Method which gave the wine extra complexity and structure. Soft pressing and primary fermentation at 15°C controlled temperature. Tirage with selected yeasts in spring time after harvest. 10-month ageing on the lees in the bottle in order to preserve as much as possible the typical fruity aroma of the vineyard. After degorging the wine undergoes another 6-month period of cave ageing.

"Complex and elegant, with aromas of grapefruit, nectarines, cedar. Palate is vibrant with green fruit, citrus and herbs. Rich, fine, and persistent."

 

Wine Enthusiast, Dec/2016

"White spring flower and orchard fruit aromas float out of the glass. The bright breezy palate shows crisp green apple, peach and a hint of tangerine zest alongside a soft mousse and vibrant acidity."
