The De Stefani family began producing wine at the Colvendrame estate, between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. Generations later, in the 1960’s, they bought vines in the Piave Valley (Pra’ Longo estate) and in Fossalta di Piave (Le Ronche estate) where they set up a new base and winery. Both enjoy exceptional micro-climates, due to the nearby Adriatic, the Dolomites Alps and the surrounding hills as well as a very particular “caranto” soil: a mix of Alpine white clay and minerals.
The 2017 Terre Nobili has a sweet, rich nose of stewed red fruit, with notes of cooked strawberry, confit cherry and raspberry jam. On the palette, it is immediately soft, gentle and warming. Ripe red cherries and red plums give way to a touch of sweet spice and cinnamon. The finish is direct and intense with fresh, bright, laser acidity.
