Description

The Martini company was founded in Italy in 1863 producing vermouth but also sparkling wines made from the locally grown and naturally sweet Moscato Bianco grapes. It is currently celebrating its 150th anniversary. From 1871 to 1900 Martini sparkling wines were being exported far and wide: Shanghai, Istanbul, Vienna, Mexico and Russia. In 1895, Federico Martinotti, invented a new method to create sparkling wines. By creating the secondary fermentation in a closed and sealed vat he found a way not only to make wines of consistently high quality, but also a way to do it more quickly in order to preserve the natural freshness of the grapes. In the 1930s the process was adopted by growers in the Veneto-Friulli area who used it to make Spumante from their native grape Glera (then known as Prosecco). This same process is used by Martini for their Prosecco. Whole bunches of grapes are gently pressed to create must (the natural juice of the grapes). The first fermentation will then transform the musts into still wines. This is carried out in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the natural character of the fruit. The wines will be fresh, crisp and quite high in acidity. The secondary fermentation takes place in our state-of-the-art pressure tanks where the carefully selected base wines undergo a carefully controlled secondary fermentation. CO2 released during the process will dissolve into the wine and give it its Spumante (sparkle). Once secondary fermentation is completed the Spumante wine rests on its 'lees' (the yeast) for a short time, to add a degree of extra flavour and complexity. It is then filtered and bottled directly from tank with the pressure maintained throughout to preserve the Spumante or sparkle. This Martinotti method (similar to Charmat) enables us to preserve the natural freshness of the aromatic Glera grapes creating lighter and effortlessly enjoyable Italian sparkling wines. Franco Brezza, the current head winemaker for Spumante wines, has been with the company for over 27 years. Franco's father worked for the company for 38 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Last minute order! I was looking for some sparkling wine and noticed the offer for some prosecco in the news paper. Having never tried any prosecco before I took a risk and ordered a case. The case was ordered in the evening and was delivered the next morning....amazing, and, it was delicious! 26 April 2014
