Malibran sits within this region of the DOCG in the well respected town
of Susegana that lies just south west of Conegliano. A perfect spot
full of rolling hills of vineyards and overlooked by the impressive
Castle of San Salvatore. Malibran is a producer focused on quality
rather than quantity, that values people’s enjoyment of the wines over
simply making another sale
Like the better-known Prosecco, Col Fondo is an Italian sparkler that
must be made with a minimum 85% of native grape Glera. Rather than
create bubbles in steel tanks, however, these more traditional versions
undergo second fermentation in the bottle. They aren’t disgorged,
either” these wines are bottled on their lees.
The yeasty residue leaves a fine sediment on the bottom, fondo in
Italian, which imparts complexity and intense flavors, including Alpine
herbs, apples, mineral tones and citrus notes. Col Fondo has less
exuberant bubbles than its tank-fermented sibling, and, as such, is
classified as frizzante.
This is the prosecco you want to drink. It is DANGEROUSLY drinkable!
