This typical wine has a Prosecco obtained from a careful selection of selected grapes of the same vintage, with its fresh and fruity taste it manages to conquer everyone from the first sip. Straw yellow in color, fine and persistent perlage, it has intense and fruity aromas. On the palate it is perceived sweet, soft and full but balanced by a pleasant sour note.
Area of Production:
Veneto is a substantial and increasingly important wine region in the northeastern corner of Italy. Veneto is armed with a formidable portfolio of red wines to go with its refreshing whites, such as Soave and sparkling Prosecco. The common factor that unites almost all viticultural zones in northeastern Veneto is the Glera grape (typically known as Prosecco), and the foaming spumante and semi-sparkling frizzante wines it creates.
Glera is a synonym of northern Italy’s Prosecco grape, and the name by which it is now officially known. This green-skinned variety has been grown for hundreds of years in the Veneto and Friuli regions, most famously to produce sparkling Prosecco wines. It has high acidity and a fairly neutral palate, making it ideal for sparkling wine production. Glera’s aromatic profile is characterized by white peaches, with an occasional soapy note.
