Description 1 of 1
Valdobbiadene, a.k.a. Prosecco Valdobbiadene, refers to wines produced within a specific growing zone within the Prosecco Conegliano-Valdobbiadene region in the Veneto, Italy. Each part of the hypenated name is its own vineyard zone. The wines can be labeled separately denoting origin only from either place, or as the hyphenated name when a blend of fruit from both places. Prosecco from either or both zones is considered the finest quality.
The wines from Valdobbiadene are grown in higher elevations and tend to be more tart and crisp in character. The blend must consist of 85% Prosecco (Glera) grapes with an allowable 15% blend of Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and/or Verdisio. If the latter grape is present in the blend, only a maximum 10% can be added. Wines must be a minimum 10.5% alcohol by volume (ABV).
For more information on the history and production of Prosecco, please see its Varietal listing.
