The must is divided from the skins at once and then passed into a steel tank where it completes its fermentation for about 8-10 days at a controlled temperature of 18°C. Afterwards the wine is stored in a special tank with the addition of must which has the same alcohol content. The wine is left for a new fermentation until it gets the desired over-pressure (5 atmospheres). It is filtered again before bottling. Harvest Date: Second half of September; Cellaring: 2 years.
The company was founded by Carlo Botter in 1928 as a small business selling local Veneto wines in barrels and demijohns. It took its first major step forward with the arrival of the second generation of the family. After the Second World War, brothers Arnaldo and Enzo began selling wine in bottles. They boosted the company’s presence on the Italian market and – most importantly – they began a constant process of expansion in other countries, which would become the company’s main source of income.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Botter was able to keep up with the growing international market and expand its range. Some of its Veneto wines were now made on the family land in Motta di Livenza, near Treviso. They were joined by other wines made in the main Italian wine regions, as well as the production and sales of grape juice.
The recently renovated Là di Motte estate epitomizes the family’s close ties with its homeland.
