Minini was established in 1920 when Mr. Francesco Minini, young soldier, came back from First World War: with a little money and a great determination decided to start the wine business in a rural economy and a poor market. At the beginning of the ‘60s the big growth of the Company forces the Mininis’ to move into a new Winery, which is still the current Headquarter, even though enlarged and restored. During all these years the Minini Family never forgot its tight link with the land, developing new cooperation projects with growers all over the main production areas of Italy. This allowed the Family to widen the portfolio of wines to support its introduction on the International markets. Their strategy has been to source new wines from the plenty of unique ancient vineyards typical of Italy, rediscovering, with the new technologies of wine-making, the value of the Italian tradition.

Winemaker's Notes

Small and lively bubbles burst onto the tongue. A smooth mousse and subtle wild apples and pear fruits exude from the palate with a refreshing lift on the finish. Fit for a celebration, though ideal for a toast on any occasion.

Il Caggio Prosecco 20cl, , Cantine Francesco Minini S.P.A

Il Caggio Prosecco 20cl

Origin: Italy

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.

Vinification

Prosecco, Italy's famed sparkling wine, and the name of the white grape (Glera) that is used comes from the Veneto region. Unlike Champagne, Prosecco is produced using the Charmat method in which the secondary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. This process makes Prosecco a delightful wine to drink young and fresh. Allergens: sulphites.
