CUV – Duca di Dolle
Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G.

Duca di Dolle Spumante Brut “Rive di Rolle” Cuvèe is made with Glera grapes cultivated in a single vineyard, with over 50-years-old plants. Thanks to the particular composition of soil and the favorable exposure, this “riva” continues to produce a small but high quality crop of fruit. A real Cru produced in limited and numbered quantity.
