Terroir Notes: The grapes come from mature vines grown on high hillsides that give the wine a slight mineral quality. The Glera grapes were planted via massal selection.

Winemaking Notes: Estate Glera grapes are softly pressed. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks with spontaneous yeast. The secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle following the classic method. The wine is not disgorged, leaving the natural yeast inside the bottle. Col fondo translates in Italian to "with the bottom," meaning that sediment or lees are present.

Tasting Notes: This col fondo Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG is a pure expression of its natural home. Starting with hints of yellow fruit, it is light and crisp with elegant floral notes, an intense aroma of acacia flower, and a light mineral sensation. The textural element is outstanding. The Bronca sisters have produced a deliciously glou glou Difetto Perfetto or "perfect defect."

    The 2018 Difetto Perfetto Vino Spumante opens up with a savory display of wild herbs, evolving further to show pear, hints of toasty bread and flowery undergrowth. It soothes with a fine bead of bubbles which travel across a core of zesty acids, and minerals giving way to subtle notes of apple and gingery spice. Notes of spiced orange and tangerine linger long. This is a very unique “raw wine” produced 100% from Glera in the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C., yet it doesn’t list it as such on the label.
