Repost von @thestoryofmywine bisol – molera valdobbiadene prosecco superiore d.o.c.g. extra dry (86 tsomw points)
the history of the bisol family in valdobbiadene dates back to the 16th century. the cultivation of grapes was her main activity, until eliseo bisol decided in 1875 to make his own wine from his grapes. the first world war caused a lot of damage in the vineyards and the company. after the war, elio's son desiderio (nickname 'jeio') started planting new vineyards. he gave the company a boost so that his four children could take over a successful business. today, the domain has 177 hectares of vineyards, of which 3 hectares are located in the famous sub-zone cartizze.
the roots of these vines stretch out downwards into the clay-laden marine sandstone of the steep slopes of morainic hills dappled with patches of “molera“ a soft citrine rock. the stony soil with various depths allows the roots of the vines to p*******e deep into the ground as far as the bedrock. the grape harvest, rigorously carried out by hand on the steep slopes, the strenuous work, the passionate and continuous confrontation with the extreme terrain bestows the mantle of heroic agriculture on this wine.
in the glass a bright straw yellow color showing persistent small mousse.
on the nose aromas of pear, ripe peaches, lemon and wild flowers.
