When the time came to replant a vineyard dedicated to a local red grape variety, Gianluca Salamon, project director/owner for Elysian, Prosecco Brut DOCG and his father, Francesco Salamon, decided to change their plantings to the production of the region's most famous wine, Prosecco. Terriero, landowner in Italian, is vinified in a brut style with 10 -12 grams residual sugar on the families estate vineyards located in the Santa Lucia di Piave area of the Treviso DOC.
Along with the award winning Elysian Prosecco Superiore DOCG, Terriero DOC is produced by winemaker Desiderio Bortolin at his state of the art, eponymous winery, Bortolin Angelo. Consistent with the Elysian production practices, Terriero Prosecco DOC is held in tank and bottled in small lots to order.
Straw colored with a delicate and persistent bead, Terriero displays aromas of ripe, yellow peach and apricot. Crisp and fresh with a fruit rich palate, Terriero Prosecco is perfect as an aperitif and represents top quality, artisan made Prosecco at an affordable price.
Total production 2500 cases
