Miotto

Valdobbiadene, Veneto, Italy

Treviso, Valdobbiadene Veneto, Italy Azienda Agricola Miotto began in the late 1970s with a miniscule family farm in Treviso, located within Valdobbiadene - in the heart of Prosecco territory. Over the years, the farm expanded to 9 hectares run with crazy passion and hard work. Andrea claims that his wines are to be a careful cohesion of modern knowledge to time-honored techniques. He intends the taster to experience the history of a land and people all within a glass of white wine. A tall order for a sparkling wine normally so commercialized as Prosecco. The Prosecco region DOC (Denominazione di origine controllata or “Controlled designation of origin") recently went through some upheaval. Because of mass commercialization of Prosecco, in 2010 the producers within the approved, traditional Prosecco regions lobbied for a name change. Glera, one of the grape varieties in this classic style of wine, now has replaced the name “Prosecco.” So Prosecco, itself now refers to a precise territorial region of north-eastern Italy, including seven provinces of the Veneto and Friuli, which includes Valdobbiadene-Conegliano - the steep sloped hillsides of quality Prosecco production. Composed mostly of older vines, Andrea Miotto’s sundrenched, sloping vineyards sit on shallow soils atop a complex matrix of rocky subsoils. Moraine, sandstone and clay. From vine to bottle, he emphasizes the delicate nature of Valdobbiadene’s indigenous grapes and works cleanly and completely. His most prized Prosecco comes from Federa, a two hectare vineyard. Wholeheartedly, I feel this is a new wave of Prosecco grower in the Veneto, one who works as a farmer first and proud to emphasize the distinctiveness of his region. With his skilled hand in crafting fragile, lacy, expressive proseccos, Andrea Miotto is one to watch… and appreciate the fruits of his efforts.
