IS PROSECCO BECOMING MORE SERIOUS – R150 pp
The most successful export out of Italy for the last 15 years is rethinking its positioning in the international market. Last year, we visited the experts at the Consortium of Conegliano Valdobbiadene, the main DOCG area for Prosecco Superiore, to learn how this 18-kilometer stretch of Prosecco countryside has been divided into 19 sub-zones and 43 Rive MGAs (or site-specific banks).
We discovered that the cutting edge of Prosecco is becoming far more serious, as the category looks to mount a long-term challenge to Champagne. We learn that at least 10% more prosecco is now being vinified drier, either as brut or extra brut. Does this mean Prosecco is becoming less lovable?
Our tasting navigates the territories and producers we represent. We explain what to look out for on the label and why one bottle costs more than another. Taste Prosecco DOC, and compare it to Prosecco Superiore DOCG from the cru areas of Asolo, Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, its Rive, and Cartizze!
Wines from La Delizia, Giusti, Bellenda, and La Tordera.
