Tasting Notes

Elegant aromas of hawthorn, wildflower, white peach and sliced pear. The vibrant balanced palate has flavors of citrus, crisp apple and a hint of ginger set against a firm acidity and a soft, foaming mousse. It has a clean dry finish.

WINE INFORMATION

The Mongarda story began in 1978, when Bruno Tormena decided to dedicate himself full-time to the career of vignaiolo.  He learned the art of vine cultivation while working with his grandfather in family vineyards in the locality of Mongarda, from which the estate takes its name.  Bruno transmitted his passion to his son, Martino, who has run the estate alongside his wife since 2011.  Martino is a recent graduate of the enology school in Conegliano and he has intensified his family’s commitment to their land and the quality of their wines.

Today, Mongarda has 3 hectares of woods and 10 hectares of vines, spread between the villages of Col San Martino, Farra di Soligo, Miane, and Valdobbiadene.  This is the heart of the Valdobbiadene-Conegliano Prosecco Superiore zone, and Mongarda’s vineyards are on extreme slopes with old vines and poor, rocky soils, a situation which forces them to be worked manually.   The main varietal is, of course, Glera, but the Tormena family has also kept the local heirlooms of Perera, Verdiso, Bianchetta, and Boschera, which are interspersed through the parcels and co-harvested and co-fermented with the Glera.

The vines, some dating back to 1950, are farmed organically. Grapes are hand-harvested, whole-cluster pressed; primary fermentation with indigenous yeasts in 100 hectoliter stainless steel vats, secondary fermentation in autoclave according to the Charmat method. The Prosecco is lightly filtered before bottling.
