2012 Prosecco D.O.C. (Italy)
Gold Medal: 2014 Denver Int'l Wine Competition; Delicious Italian sparkling wine - perfect for toasts and celebrations.
Super zesty nose right out of the glass, tantalizing your nose with aromas of apple skin notes and hints of citrus. On the palate it’s zesty, fresh, and not overly sweet or sugary – it delicately walks the line between density on the palate and a honey brioche character. It’s a beautiful glass of bubbly, and versatile, too – most folks seem to like Prosecco as an aperitif, but it also drinks great with food or as a palate cleanser, and obviously it’s absolutely perfect for toasts and celebrations.
Style: Light, Crisp
Flavors: Apple, Citrus, Honey
I was introduced to an owner of an estate (one of the biggest growers in Fruili Grave DOC) whose samples quickly convinced me that he was making some of the best Prosecco available today. Located at the foot of the Italian Alps just up the road from Treviso, they are one of a handful of Prosecco producers in the region that is seriously setting the bar for Italian sparkling wine very high. These artisan winemakers are totally dedicated to quality, and precisely craft this wine from grapes to bottling – they even bottle the wine and let it come up to temperature naturally, so the labeling process doesn’t encounter any condensation. Cream of the crop, first-class, artisanally produced Prosecco that you are going to love popping bottle after bottle.
