Belluno - Rifugio Panarotta 171 km
Welcome to the Dolomites. Another hard test for the riders with probably an interesting start to the stage. With small timegaps in the top ten this is going to be a free-for-all.
Amy's wine tip for the day: Bele Casel ASOLO PROSECCO DOCG“COLFONDO” 2012
After all of those pictures of Prosecco vineyards yesterday.
‘Colfondo’ refers to the artisanal approach of making Prosecco, whereby the second, carbonic fermentation takes place in bottle, leaving a slight residue at the bottom of the bottle (‘il fondo’) which when disturbed makes the wine cloudy, enriching it with the lees of the vinification.

Dry with light fruit and some yeast. A lovely pairing with charcuterie.
