SafŒno™ PR 106: for Prosecco & Terpenic

For winemakers seeking excellence in Prosecco base wines, SafŒno™ PR 106 is a game-changer. With an intense fruity and floral aromatic profile, this yeast brings complexity to the wine, balancing acidity and sweetness while reducing potential defects. It exhibits a clean, fruity character and a fresh mouthfeel, earning accolades for its positive impact on Glera grapes.

Beyond Prosecco, SafŒno™ PR 106 is the perfect choice for floral and fruity whites, especially terpenic varieties like Muscat. This yeast promotes the release of terpenes, enhancing the aromatic complexity of the wine. Its well-balanced notes of amylic and fruity characteristics make it equally well-suited for Chardonnay bases, particularly those grown in warm climates.
