Wine Details

BiancaVigna Prosecco Superiore Extra Brut Conegliano Valdobbiadene Rive di Soligo DOCG

“Rive” in the local dialect refers to the steep slopes of the Conegliano/Valdobiaddene hills. In fact, BiancaVigna’s Rive di Soligo vineyard is positioned 380 meters (1247 feet) a.s.l. with a 70% slope, making vineyard work particularly laborious. The result, however, is a remarkable “Cru” Prosecco with a bright straw-green color and an inviting nose where minerals and mint are complemented by green apple and white peach. The palate is rich and creamy, with notes of peach and apricot and multilayered, refined floral notes. This is a very fine and elegant wine.

BiancaVigna Prosecco Superiore Extra Brut Conegliano Valdobbiadene Rive di Soligo DOCG 2020

Wine Enthusiast (93)- "Always one of the top expressions from the denomination, the 2020 doesn't disappoint. It opens with heady aromas of hawthorn, ripe orchard fruit and botanical herbs while the dry, elegantly sparkling palate doles out ripe green apple, white peach, fennel seed and crushed rosemary. A yeasty hint of bread dough adds depth while crisp acidity keeps it refreshing. "

BiancaVigna Prosecco Superiore Extra Brut Conegliano Valdobbiadene Rive di Soligo DOCG 2020

Vinous Media (91)- "The 2020 Rive di Soligo comes to life slowly in the glass, dusty and smoky at first. Yet, with time, delicate floral perfumes, notes of ginger-tinged apple and subtle savory spices emerge. This is rich and pliant in feel, but with a core of stimulating acidity and saline-minerals to match, as tart orchard fruits and a twang of sour citrus settles in. The Rive di Soligo tapers off clean and fresh, a bit shorter than anticipated, yet satisfying all the same. (Lot# 137)"

BiancaVigna Prosecco Superiore Extra Brut Conegliano Valdobbiadene Rive di Soligo DOCG 2019

Wine Enthusiast (92)- "Enticingly fragrant, this has heady aromas of perfumed spring flower, white stone fruit and aromatic herb. On the dry, foaming palate, bright acidity lifts creamy white peach, crunchy green apple and a hint of honeydew melon before a white-almond close. A silky perlage lends elegance."
