Probably originating from the Friuli region, where a village bears its name, prosecco (or glera) has colonized the hills north of Treviso for at least two centuries, particularly around the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. The grape variety is best known for producing spumante or frizzante wines, both sparkling production methods, with two sugar levels: extra-dry and dry.
Appearance: Pale colour, in tender shades.
Aroma: This low-aromatic variety is a little more aromatic in its semi-dry version, delivering fresh and discreet notes of citrus fruits, white fruits, flowers, sometimes yeast or dried fruits.
On the Palate: The spumante quality gives a lively, unstructured, delicate wine, sometimes marked by a slight bitterness. The dry and extra-dry, which is the traditional style, are rounder, with a more crunchy fruitiness.
What should we open it with? Aperitif, fine fish, vegetable or fish terrines, fruit desserts (dry)
