“Casel”, in the local dialect, are the small houses located on hillside sites, the “Rive”, once used as tool sheds or shelters from the rain. Casei is also the local nickname of the Adami family. Dei Casel is an Extra Dry whose freshness, liveliness and aromatic profile make it perfect as an aperitif.

Viticultural area Hill areas in the comuni of Valdobbiadene-Vidor-Farra di Soligo

Soils profile: Mixed soils, typical of morainic (glacial) origin of many of the area’s hills. Clayey, often calcareous, low-nutrient and well-drained; fairly shallow, in particular at higher elevations.
Aspect Hillsides, often steep, with vines contoured across slopes and generally facing south.
Climate: Moderate temperatures with cold winters and warm, dry summers. Average rainfall: 1250 millimetres with heaviest fall in June and November, lightest in January and August. Solar radiation, April-October: 92,745 cal/cm2 .
- Alcohol 11% vol.
- Sugar 15-17 g/l
- Total acidity 6 g/l pH 3.20
- Atmospheres: 4.80 -5.00 bar
Presentation: Straw yellow. Creamy mousse and delicate, long-lasting bead. Nose: Generous fruit, releasing hints of apples, peaches and tropical fruit, plus wisteria and acacia blossoms. Wonderful balance and elegance complement a pleasurably crisp spiciness. Palate: Velvety, crisp, and fruity. Admirable fullness and length, closely mirroring the nose. A wine of great balance and elegance.
Food recommendation: An excellent aperitif for all social occasions, especially festive gatherings. Matches well with pastries and cakes (without fillings) and with canapés. A particularly good match for pandoro and panettone.
Serving temperature: Chill to 7-8° C before serving. An ice-bucket is the perfect presentation.
Serving glass: White wine glass, medium-wide. Avoid using tall, slender flutes: while they maximize enjoyment of the bead, they inhibit release of the wine’s bouquet.
