Rive di Rolle
Valdobbiadene Docg - Millesimato - Dry
Terroir (click here)
Vigna Ochera is a Valdobbiadene DOCG made with grapes grown in vineyards at 250 to 450 metres asl, where temperature excursions are strong.
This wine is an evolution of our previous millesimato, and now comes from a specific vineyard in the Rive di Rolle terroir.
The rock formations in this zone are predominantly marl and clay, developing deep, finely textured soil with no skeleton. This type of soil tends to provide mediocre drainage and may host more or less serious decarbonation processes.
The surface layer of soil in this vineyard is rich in organic substances, silt and brownish yellow sand streaked with black. Seventy five centimetres below lies yellow sandy clay, and then fine silty sand rich in mineral salts that dissolved from the top layers during the soil formation process over the last 10,000 years.
The dry climate ensured by elevation, deep soil that withholds water and one of the highest average annual
temperatures (due to the protection of the Treviso Prealps), help to ripen the grapes, which give of their best in dry conditions.

These ideal conditions guarantee prevalently monopertenic aromatic compounds above average for the zone, which enrich Andreola’s millesimato Dry with pleasant fruity hints.
Over a number of vintages, on average, the base wine has never failed to provide flavours and aromas that are robust and well balanced, as well as pleasant and typical.
The copious subtle bubbles of this sparkling wine rise to form a white, creamy froth. The full scents are evident: orange blossoms, wisteria, apples, peaches, candied mandarin and orange peel, lychees, sweet spices and marzipan. It explodes elegantly in the mouth, creating a pleasant sensation that is flawless, direct and genuine, a gift of the clayey marl soil.
Delicious with cream-free desserts and perfect for providing the ambience for serious meditation.
