The historical witness of the vine date back to the Roman times when this wine was well known and appreciated, up to the point that one of its biggest fan was Mrs Livia Drusillia, wife of the Emperor Augustus. A modern vine with an ancient history, bounded to the territory which plays a fundamental role in the definition of its identity: Italianness! Today Prosecco DOC has become a wine for every occasion, an excellent companion for aperitifs, meals, parties or intriguing after dinners... DIVICI: the choice of the bottle shape was meant to recall the history and specifically the ancient Roman columns, which served as supporting elements for the public buildings overlooking the main "Square" (the so called “Piazza”), hub of the social and cultural life of that time. The name DIVICI is made up of the characters of the Roman numerals, which confer greater importance to its classical harmony, it unique personality and its contemporary design, thought to be unforgettable.

The soft pressed juice is stored in stainless steel tanks for static cold decanting. Once the clean juice is racked and inoculated with selected yeasts, it will go through fermentation at a controlled constant temperature of 18°C within 8/10 days. After a storage period, the winemaker studies a skilled coupage to achieve the Prosecco Spumante base cuvée. Subsequently the base wine is filtered and additioned of saccharose and selected yeasts to undergo second fermentation (Martinotti – Charmat method) at a controlled temperature of 14-15°C in a pressure tank. Once required pressure, alcohol and sugar level are reached the wine is refrigerated, cold stabilized (-2/-3°C), filtered and controlled before bottling.
