Obtained from Glera grape, Prosecco is distinguished for its fruity and fragrant wine characteristics with a delicate nose. The Prosecco vine is hardy and vigorous with quite large, long grape clusters of golden yellow. The wine itself demonstrates a straw-yellow colour with greenish hue overlay. The nose offers a fragrant bouquet, including golden apples, citrus fruits and fresh plants, interspersed with lilac and acacia flowers.
The Veneto region was granted DOCG status in 2010 because it is the ideal home for Prosecco. With the right soil composition, hills well exposed to sunlight, abundant and frequent rainfall, constant mild temperatures between April and October, and marked temperature changes during the ripening season, there simply is no better place to produce this wine.
This perfect blend of climate, morphology, and soil composition combined with the long history of winemaking has resulted in superior wines of exceptional substance. In fact, there’s yet to be found any other wine area so perfectly suited to developing wines with the fragrant, complex aromas of Prosecco.
