Altaneve
Z Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
Veneto

Altaneve Z is pinnacle of what Prosecco wine can be, and aims to set a new standard for Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Altaneve Z is a very limited production wine hand-harvested from a 2000 year-old vineyard in Valdobbiadene, on a small plot beneath the hamlet of San Pietro di Barbozza on a small hillside named Localitá Rive Longa. This micro-plot is so small that it can only produce 1,500 bottles per year and it is worth the toil as the terroir bestows an amazing minerality to this unique wine.
