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.

  • Trevisiol Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Extra Brut Vino Spumante Metodo Classico 1989

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting wine which apparently (according to the sommelier) has been aged 15 years before degorgement! Too bad though that the wine was really flat and boring, and the mousse was nothing to write home about. But it was an interesting experiment. I don't reccommend this. Read More
