Christian Zago, accompanied by Marika, represents the 5th generation of growers at Ca’ dei Zago, a family farm in the heart of Valdobbiadene. The most important part of this family legacy is the vineyards now totalling around 6.5 hectares (4.5 planted to vine) —and the hands-on, hands-off way the Zagos treat them. Since the origin as a mixed farm in 1924, the family have never used chemical fertilisers, an approach that Christian has been taking to the next level, being an eloquent proponent and practitioner of biodynamics. He is a strong believer that you can’t replace in the winery what nature didn’t give you in the vineyard.

The wine is light and refreshing, with pleasant notes of citrus, honeysuckle and wet stone. There is lively acidity, purity, precision and fine long-lasting bubbles. You can drink it the local way, decanted off the lees and then a final turbo-charged glass of turbidity, or half-and-half or shaken up to distribute the sediment through the wine, an action that imbues with a richer, creamier texture. A very refined mousse, subtle orchard fruit flavours, elegant minerality – what a classy Prosecco.
