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 »

  • Villa Teresa Organic Prosecco NV

    Snoothrank:

    This is an easy-drinking balanced Prosecco. Organically-grown Prosecco grapes, vat-fermented. Equivalent to a demi-sec on the Champagne sweetness scale, this wine exhibits subtle green-apple and a hint of lime on the nose, and the familiar yeasty fresh bread dough component. I can also sense fresh laundry. It is delicious. Read More

    Thought this was an excellent bottle of Prosecco - nice citrus flavors, good acidity, clean and fresh. Maybe I like it more than some of the other reviewers here due to the fact that I got it at a very nice price here in Florence. I can easily see making this my "house" sparkling wine. Was perfect with a coconut curry risotto with shrimp last ni... Read More
