BOTTEGA GOLD AWARDED MASTER MEDAL BY THE DRINK BUSINESS FOR THE SECOND TIME

web3Bibano, 15th May 2018. After having won the prestigious Master Medal in 2015, Bottega Gold made it again and received the highest recognition in the latest edition of the Prosecco Masters, the competition organised by the British magazine The Drinks Business. The jury, composed of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and senior buyers, tasted approximately 160 wines on their style and price, in a blind tasting session – which grants the anonymity of the tasted sample. This medal (the 26th recognition achieved over the past 10 years) rewards the company’s efforts to produce a premium prosecco featuring the highest standard of quality in the category. The tasting panel has recognised a value that results from several elements combined:
Grapes are grown in Valdobbiadene, in the heart of the hilly DOCG area; the bunches are selected when hand-picked (according to their degree of maturation and their health condition), and gently handled to preserve their integrity;
The vineyards are composed of plants of different ages, conveying the perfect balance of the compounds which deliver quality to a wine: aromas given by older vines, and acidity given by younger plants; Bottega Gold is produced to order, to ensure maximum freshness. In the winery, one single fermentation directly transforms the grape must into sparkling wine, hence preserving in full the delicate aromas of the grape: white flowers (acacia, wisteria, lily of the valley), green apple, pear and citrus.
Since 2001, Bottega S.p.A. distributes the metallized bottles in over 120 countries worldwide. These iconic items, produced with a complex finishing process, has contributed to build the company’s reputation for being an original and innovative winemaker. Due to this worldwide success, Bottega Gold has been the object of many flagrant imitation attempts. The company, holders of the product’s patent, have had its rights legally recognized on several occasions. In March 2018, EUIPO (The European Office for Intellectual Property responsible for managing the EU trade mark and the registered Community design) has confirmed the validity of the trademarks owned by Bottega.
About Bottega Gold Bottega Gold is a Prosecco Brut sparkling wine, obtained by Glera grapes grown in the Valdobbiadene region. This area is located near to the Venetian Prealps and is characterized by an ideal climate for this native grape variety. The grapevines grow on hilly terrain, in an area of outstanding natural beauty and ancient winemaking tradition. The grapes are harvested by hand, and are then gently pressed in the cellars. The obtained must is then stored in steel containers at a low temperature in order to preserve the freshness. It then undergoes a second fermentation in autoclaves for around forty days at a controlled temperature of 14-15° C with the addition of selected yeasts, according to the Charmat-Martinotti method.
Bottega Gold is characterized by exceptionally fruity aromas of apple, pear and exotic fruit, as well as its fresh flavour encompassing a dry and fragrant aftertaste. Perfect as an aperitif and well suited to use in delicious cocktails – such as Bellini or Rossini -, it can be suitably paired with every meal: from appetizers and starters of all kinds, to main meals and fish dishes in particular.
