"Gorio" Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOC
Spumante Extra Dry
This wine takes its name from grandpa Gregorio, the founder of the Azienda Agricola Malibrán, and it's currently the top wine produced in the new winery.
Made with 100% Prosecco grapes harvested by hand and collected into small containers, so as not to damage the berries and to allow for the gentle pressing of whole grapes. The alcohol content of this excellent sparkling wine is 11.5% by volume, is golden yellow in color and has a fine, abundant and persistent perlage.
This Prosecco has flowery notes of wisteria, acacia and roses that overlap fruity scents of apple and white peach. It is full, round and extremely harmonious to the palate, with a progressive, delicate and complete carbonic development.
After being decanted ten times, the wine is allowed rest in its natural yeast for two months in order to enhance the characteristic aroma.
This wine must be served in flute glass at 46.4° to 50° F. (8°-10° C). It is excellent as an aperitif or with light hors d'oeuvres and pairs well with legume soups, shellfish recipes, pasta with delicate meat sauces, fresh cheese and white meat, especially poultry.
"Ponte Ros", Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOC Frizzante
As for the "Gorio" line, the Ponte Ros Frizzante (crisp, sparkling) is made with 100% Prosecco grapes harvested by hand, collected in small containers and crushed whole with gentle pressure.

Just four months into 2005 and the passionate work and lovely care dedicated to these products by enologist Maurizio Favrel, have already brought two prestigious prizes to the Azienda Agricola Malibrán.
The latest recognition is just a few weeks old. The Prosecco di Valdobbiadene DOC Spumante Extra Dry "Gorio", in fact, was awarded the prestigious Diploma di Gran Menzione (Great Mention Diploma) at the 13th International Enologic Competition, held in Verona on the occasion of the 39th Vinitaly.
Previously, in 2005 the same wine won the Gold Medal at the Mostra dei Vini di Pramaggiore (Pramaggiore Wine Show), in the province of Venice.
