Prosecco

Name of varietal: Prosecco

Common synonyms: Glera
 
Parentage of the grape: thought to have been first grown in Friuli, then brought to the Veneto region of Italy where it became most popular. 
 
History of the grape: References to a lightly sparkling wine in the Veneto date back to the 1100s, but it was much sweeter than the popular styles today. The reason for this is that the grape reaches full ripeness relatively late in the harvest season. The grapes would be crushed and set to ferment. However cold temperatures that couldn’t be controlled meant the wine would be bottled often before complete fermentation, which means residual sugar that didn’t get a chance to be converted to alcohol is still in the wine. Come spring, carbon dioxide gets trapped in the bottle, and the wine gets fizzy. The Carpene Malvoti winery under the direction of Antonio Carpene is credited with changing that method in 1868. He employed the French Charmat method to give the wine a secondary Read more »

  • Lamarca Prosecco NV

    Snoothrank:

    Clean green apple and lemon aromas. A hint of sweetness on the palate, but not quite off-dry, with pronounced notes of peach and melon. A lactic acid note carries a creaminess on the palate that is matched quite well by the medium bubbles, white peach fruit and steely minerality. Towards the finish there's a pleasant biscuity cereal note that li... Read More

    This has creamy aromas of cheese rind with peach and green apple fruit that's fairly bright on the nose.

  • Nicely done!  BTW, Emark isn't the only one with a few wines on hand ... and at the lower end Zonin Prosecco for about $7--it's fine for Bellinis and Samosas and even on its own.  They have a "better" Prosecco for around $10 that stands on its own.  They usually carry at least one Ruffino Chianti--Ruffino is one of the oldest and biggest produ...

  • Riondo Prosecco Spago Argento NV

    Snoothrank:

    Nice substitute for sparkling. A little bigger bubbles, a little more sugar but makes a great party sparkling for both lovers and non lovers of the bubbles. Easy on the wallet too! Found on Wine.com and most large retailers. Read More
