Follador presents Kleofe, a new elegant Extra Brut sure to be appreciated by all the fans of our Millesimati wines. In the name of a great family tradition, whose history spans several generations, we decided to dedicate this sparkling wine to our grandmother Cleofe, mother of founder Gianfranco Follador.
Cleofe was a strong and voluptuous woman, endowed with an intuition that at that time was rarely recognized among women. She busily involved herself in the life of her family and its financial interests, supporting her husband in the management of farmland and family vineyards. This created the basis for the current success of the Follador brand.
It’s also thanks to people like her that women today have a place in the world of work; they can be wives, mothers and entrepreneurs without one role diminishing the of another. We like to imagine that today she would be proud to see how far her family has progressed. That’s why we pay tribute by placing her name on this inviting wine. It is dry, straw yellow color, and has a fine and persistent perlage. The fragrance reminds rose, one of pink wisteria, white peach and pear.
For the capsule we chose an exuberant, bright, feminine and brilliant color to top the bottle, symbolizing all the qualities in the memory of Grandma Cleofe, the woman who inspired it.
2020 HARVEST – AN EXCELLENT VINTAGE
The quality of the grapes harvested is excellent; the climate was lenient and favorable, as evidenced by the fragrant bouquet of the musts, also good from an analytical point of view. 2020 was a particular and difficult year in many regards, but this magnificent harvest rewards us and gives us optimism for the future.
