Della Vite is a world-class Prosecco brought to you by the Delevingne sisters; Chloe, Poppy and Cara. This is the first joint venture between the sisters, who have shared many of their happiest experiences over a glass of Prosecco.
Della Vite Prosecco is made by the Biasiotto family, who have been crafting superior Prosecco for over three generations in the heart of the Valdobbiadene appellation. Beneath the Dolomite mountains, the hills of Valdobbiadene are alive with the local culture, knowledge and passion for making Prosecco. As it’s not known to the world beyond, Della Vite (meaning ‘from the vine’) sets out to tell Prosecco’s real story – the untold story. A region of quiet valleys and dramatic skylines, Glera grapes have been grown here since Roman times. At the heart of artisanal Italian wine culture, much of the area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, selected for conservation for its cultural and environmental significance. This means their winery’s sustainability is continually monitored.
Named after a small village, Prosecco is an Italian white wine produced in a large area in Northern Italy. The community here is alive with passion for making wine, and the wineries come together through the ‘consorzio’ (consortium) – set up to monitor and maintain quality. When the Delevigne sisters met the winemakers, who have practiced their trade for 3 generations – they felt an instant connection, which only got stronger when they tried their wines. After a two year long journey developing Della Vite Prosecco together, they naturally became part of our extended family. Solar energy powers most Della Vite production, and our water is heated by the refidgeration units’ exchange system. Nitrogen for wine storage is extracted from the air, never from chemicals. Their prosecco is filtered through a ceramic system – not draining agents containing animal products – meaning all their products are certified vegan. Before each harvest, they take a small sample of grapes and apply different homemade yeasts to see which brings out the best flavour profile from that season’s grapes. Expert winemakers oversee Della Vite’s production throughout the process – and especially during secondary fermentation, when the liquid is left in vats for 60 days – they constantly check and monitor the equipment. D.O.C and D.O.C.G are trusted markers of provenance and quality. Under Italian wine law, D.O.C.G is the highest designation of quality among Italian wines and was awarded to their Superiore Prosecco.
Della Vite Superiore Prosecco DOCG is rich and extra-dry with a highly mineral palate and a lingering finish. The hints of crostini and chamomile open up plenty of potential for food pairings. Try it with an antipasti platter including Parmesan shavings, figs and honey, artichoke hearts and Nocellara olives. For a more substantial pairing, try it with a bresaola and radicchio salad.
Della Vite Millesimato Prosecco Rose is elegant, pale coral pink colour with aromas of freshly crushed wild berries and rhubarb. The delicate fruit flavours are in perfect balance with the creamy texture and fine bubbles. It is super versatile and a great match with fresh ceviche, bruschetta, mango sorbet or summer panna cotta.
