SEI UNO Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut
SEI UNO Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut of Bellenda winery is a perfect example of refermentation in the bottle Prosecco. Abandoning the model of secondary fermentation in pressure tanks, with Sei Uno the winery return to the more traditional method of a second fermentation in the bottle. The name "SEI UNO" recalls the very first production, reserved to Bellenda family, to celebrate an event in 1961. The glera grapes are cultivated in Carpesica area, in limestone-clay soils rich in morainic deposits from the ancient Piave glacier that descended from the Fadalto saddle between MounT Pizzoc and Mount Visentin. The vineyards, facing south-southwest at an average elevation of 180 metres, are planted to an average density of 4,000 vines per hectare and are trained to a mix of Sylvoz and Cappuccina. Harvest generally occurs in the second half of September and the vineyard yield averages 80 hl/ha. The weather is mild, with cold winters and summers that are warm, but never muggy, and with consistent breezes. The day-night temperature differentials are significant, particularly in the summer.
SEI UNO Prosecco has an intense pale yellow colour. The bouquet releases rich notes of rennet apple and freshly-shelled hazelnut, enlivened by rosemary and mint. On the palate, it is clean-edged and ultra-crisp, like the first bite into an apple, mirroring the fragrances of the bouquet, while the finish is very long-lived. Enjoy at 6-8°C in a large Prosecco crystal glass. Avoid using a flute, which does not allow full expression of the wine’s bouquet. It will show good improvement during the two years following the vintage date; if it is well stored, its nose and palate will grow in complexity even four years after harvest.

Sei Uno is the perfect accompaniment to fish- and vegetable- based appetizers and other dishes.
