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 »

    Snoothrank:

    This prosecco has very good value and taste at this level of sparkling wine. Bubble is not that smooth compared to real Champagne or higher level of sparkling sine which will made by 2nd fermentation in the bottle, but you will still find out enough quality of this wine when you tried and never disappointed. This is best as daily wine or casual... Read More

  • Terra Serena Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene NV

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet and lightly musty nose. This wine is more earthy and mineral than most prosecco. There's a lot of flinty-ness and minerality in the mouth, a slightly acrid finish. Overall more mineral (pebbles) and less sweet or floral than most prosecco. Read More
