Prosecco has been a well known wine for several centuries, even the Romans recorded their enjoyment of the wine. However, it was not until after the scourge of Phylloxera that the grape’s suitability for sparkling wine was discovered and its subsequent rise in popularity saw major cities such as Venice become capitivated by the new style.
Prosecco is today one of the world’s most famous sparkling wine and ours is made from grapes grown in the moderate climate surrounding the hills of Treviso in the Veneto region.
It is light, soft and refreshing with crisp citrus flavors and is best served chilled (6-8° C or 43-46° F) as an aperitif before the meal or with light lunches, especially good with shortbread or soft herbal cheeses.
Ageing potential: up to 1 year.
