History: Piccini’s story began in 1882 with Angiolo Piccini, who owned just 7 ha of vineyards in the Chianti area. To this day, Piccini is a family owned winery, now owned by Mario and Martina Piccini, who mark the 4th generation of the family. Piccini is located in Castellina in Chianti and is one of the biggest players in Tuscany.
Vinification: Produced from Glera grapes of the vineyards located in the province of Treviso. First fermentation occurs in steel vats at controlled temperature, with selected yeasts. The Charmat method for producing effervescence from a second fermentation performed in pressurized tanks is meant to preserve fruit and freshness. This specific method geared towards retaining primary fruit character makes Prosecco a straightforward expression of terroir.
