GREEN MANURE | WHAT IS IT AND WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS
Green manure is a technique frequently used in agriculture which allows to enrich the soil of organic substance and it is particularly useful in vine cultivation.It is used to give the soil the nourishments of the planted spieces which will be cutted down and interred at the end of their growth. Thanks to green manure the soil is not only fertilized it is also more stable helping it to hold water and decreasing the erosion. There are also benefits in preventing parasites and weed. The choise of the type is very important in order to set the nourishments, it must be targetd and does not have to counteract the cultivation. In vine cultivation people normally prefer grasses which are more resistent, don’t require too much water and grow rapidly. It is, in any case, recommended to use more than one type in order to take advantage from different plants like for exsample Lolium, Festuca, Trifolium.
NON FILTRATO | BACK TO THE PAST
A sparkling white wine made of Glera with an ancient production method: a natural and spontaneous secondary fermentation in bottle. Non Filtrato or “sur lie” or “col fondo” is a wine created to be different (https://issuu.com/igrandivini/docs/igrandivini.marzo.2017). And it is really. Its naturalness is its main characteristics. A soft pressing of the grapes, Glera in purity, and a static cold clarification make the productive process start. A two steps fermentation: the first one in steel with selected yeasts at controlled temperature for five months on noble marc; the second one in bottle, where wine complete its fermentation transforming sugar in alcohol and CO2. This wine can be distributed few months after a short resting in bottle and give its best after some years too. A pleasant turbidity, due to the deposit of yearns in the bottom, characterizes the aspect of a wine that changes and develop day by day, revealing in time an interesting organoleptic complexity. Its bouquet combines fruity perfumes with the classic aroma of crust and its taste offers a discrete and well-balanced body and a pleasant acidity.

COCKTAIL | LE 5 MIGLIORI RICETTE A BASE DI PROSECCO
LEMON SHERBET FIZZ
…è il sinonimo di uno dei cocktail estivi più amati al mondo. La preparazione del sorbetto al Prosecco è molto semplice ed il risultato sarà un cocktail gustoso avendo cura di scegliere gli ingredienti giusti. Per prima cosa procurarsi del sorbetto al limone e versarne due cucchiai in un recipiente a fondo tondo e attendere che il gelato si ammorbidisca. Dopo aver mescolato il sorbetto con la frusta per renderlo più cremoso, basterà aggiungere 30 ml di limoncello e 10 ml di Prosecco mescolando con una frusta fino a che le parti alcoliche non saranno ben amalgamate al gelato. Una volta miscelato il tutto versare il composto in un calice e guarnire con due fettine di limone. A rendere unico e speciale il cocktail sarà il gusto deciso del Prosecco Millesimato DOCG Extra Dry che ti proponiamo e che farà da base ad un mix di sapori irresistibile.
