Altaneve presents American wine lovers the first opportunity to experience ultra premium Italian sparkling wine that, until now, has only been available in Italy. Created with generations of experience and a terroir unique to the steep foothills of the Italian Alps, Altaneve wines are unique. With the current sparkling wine renaissance, Altaneve wines have emerged as modern classics for those with discriminating taste.
Altaneve means “high snow” in Italian, and alludes to the snow capped Dolomite Mountains, whose peaks can be seen above the steep vineyards of Valdobbiadene. Valdobbiadene is reputed for producing the highest quality of sparkling wine. The steep terrain has produced grapes for winemaking for over 2000 years. Renowned oenologists monitor the entire Altaneve wine making process to guarantee taste and composition. The wine’s bouquet and persistent perlage are developed by an extended secondary fermenta:on, rarely employed by wine producers. The terroir and the oenology differentiate Altaneve from other wines.
Altaneve offers two Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. wines composed of 100% glera grapes, and an exclusive sparkling rosé blend composed of Pinot Nero and Glera grapes. Elegant and approachable, all three of Altaneve’s wines are finely-balanced with harmonizing fragrances and a silky finesse that offer a depth and detail typified by only the finest sparkling wines. And for the health conscious, Altaneve wines are all natural, sustainable, gluten free and vegan with low calories and super low sulfites.
