The Pozzobon family of Case Paolin has tasked themselves with bringing the Asolo Prosecco DOCG to the forefront of quality and purity within the region. Emilio Pozzobon purchased the estate in the early 1970s where his father and grandfather had been sharecroppers, shifting the family’s agricultural focus from silkworms to viticulture. Since then, his three sons Diego, Adelino, and Mirco have taken over the operation, each shoring up a specialty suited to their own strengths. Diego oversees vineyard management, Adelino manages the cellar, and Mirco serves as the oenologist and technical director. The brothers work organically and with a keen eye on quality.
This producer offers a range of Prosecco for every occasion. The Treviso DOC is extra-dry, just on the cusp of brut in terms of dosage, perfect for the aperitif. The Asolo DOCG Brut spends two months in tank under secondary fermentation, giving it a much finer perlage and creamy mouthfeel than many of its counterparts. They also produce a Col Fondo, an ancient style that means “with sediment” wherein the secondary fermentation occurs in bottle, and the wine is released prior to disgorgement; producing a rich, wild expression of Prosecco that is unique and exciting.
